Should I use a Public Certificate Author

By Del Smith ·
I have a scenario where a client has a Web Server in his network that has to be accessed from the Internet by external employees. The communication needs to be secure but should I tell them to dish out the $900 or so that it takes to get a Web Certificate from Verisign or just look at implementing Windows 2000 Certificates?

Should I use a Public Certificate Author

The answer comes down to one of trust. People use outside certificate servers to provide a level of trust that the certificate really originated with a particular party.

Since you are implementing security within a single organization, I recommend using Win2k certificates. If you can't trust your own certificates, who else can you trust? If you use an outside organization, you are effectively paying someone to tell you that you can trust yourself.
