A public key infrastructure (PKI) is a set of hardware, software, people, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption. PKI is used where simple passwords are an inadequate authentication method and more rigorous proof is required to confirm the identity of the parties involved in the communication and to validate the information being transferred. A public key infrastructure (PKI) is a system for the creation, storage, and distribution of digital certificates which are used to verify that a particular public key belongs to a certain entity.

A PKI consists of:

  • A¬†certificate authority¬†(CA) that both issues and verifies the digital certificates
  • A¬†registration authority (RA)¬†which verifies the identity of users requesting information from the CA
  • Certificate holders – to sign and encrypt digital documents
  • Clients- to validate digital signatures and their certification path from a known public key of a trusted CA
  • Repositories- to store and make available certificates and Certificate Revocation Lists(CRLs)
