Practical and secure trust anchor management and usage
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) security depends upon secure management and usage of trust anchors. Unfortunately, widely used mechanisms, management models and usage practices related to trust anchors undermine security and impede flexibility. In this paper, we identify problems with existing mechanisms, discuss emerging standards and describe a solution that integrates with some widely used applications. Categories and Subject Descriptors K.6.5 [Management of Computing and Information Systems]: Security and Protection - authentication. General Terms Security Keywords Trust anchor management, public key infrastructure (PKI).
