Der Personalausweis, der Reisepass, die elektronische Gesundheitskarte, die Smart Meter Gateways und SSL/TLS funktionieren, weil eine darunterliegende Public Key Infrastruktur (PKI) existiert. Im Workshop "PKI in a nutshell" zeigen wir die Mechanismen, Werkzeuge, Formate und Komponenten einer PKI und wie diese funktionieren und zusammenarbeiten.

CAST Online Workshops

In these times of COVID-19 restrictions in particular, questions of cyber security remain highly topical. CAST would like to make its contribution and will be organising the CAST workshops online as virtual events from July 2020. This will ensure a continuous exchange of knowledge on current cyber security issues.

The CAST workshops in digital format will be implemented with the open source web conference system BigBlueButton, which is operated with a CAST-owned server located in Darmstadt to ensure data protection.

As soon as the COVID-19 restrictions allow it, CAST will return to the usual workshop format and is already looking forward to welcoming you again personally in Darmstadt.
