This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
hi friends, we have developed website for our company. we would like to allow only authorisation people access certain pages. for that we would like to implement certificate. how to do that? where we have to specify the details about the certificate ? can u explain briefly how its works and how to implement that with application ? Thanks a lot.
How that works exactly in practical terms depends on the server you're using. There is probably some information in the server documentation. On a more theoretical level --- well, you give me hardly any clues as to the level of knowledge of certificates, PKI and SSL/TLS that you have, and this is not the place for a general introduction But we may be getting things backwards. You appear to have selected (or have been suggested) a solution without knowing how it works and whether it will solve your particular problem. Let's start with the latter. What is it exactly that you're trying to do? OK, OK, authentication of some kind obviously, but what type of infrastructure are we talking about? Intranet? Extranet? Limited user group? Extensive user group? Platforms? Browsers? Do they have certificates? Can you afford to roll out a PKI solution? How secure do you need to be anyway? Etc, etc. - Peter
