SSL Certificate Best Practices Policy
SSL certificates are essential for encrypting traffic between systems such as clients, which access servers via web browsers or applications that communicate with remote systems. Certificates protect client and server data, commonly involving confidential information such as credit card details or social security numbers.
The purpose of this SSL Certificate Best Practices Policy from TechRepublic Premium is to establish a set of best practices for the issuance, management, renewal/replacement and revocation and/or retirement of certificates.
From the policy:
Use dedicated internal certificate authorities for internal certificates. Make them redundant and ensure that they are trusted by all internal clients and servers. Include any intermediate and root authorities to ensure the entire certificate chain is trusted.
