The feature presentation for the ALE Northeast Meeting
of May 1, 2008, 7:30pm (* in the new room # noted below)
An introduction to TLS, OpenSSL,
and X.509 Certificates
presented by Stephen Cristol
— What do you do when an install-script-generated,
self-signed X.509 certificate expires? The X.509 certificate
will be an organizing theme to talk about an assortment of
topics ranging from the history of secure socket layer to
privacy enhanced mail (PEM) file formats. By the end of
the talk, you should know how to replace an expired
certificate. You should also have a better understanding
of how secure connections work.
— Stephen is an Editor of the open access journal Molecular
Vision (molvis.org). He began his Linux journey in 2000
with Red Hat 6.1. The journey continues today with CentOS
4.6 and 5.1.
