CA Options: Buy or Build, and Signed by Whom?
Wednesday, April 16 | 2:15PM–3:15PM | Assembly Room
Session Type: Professional Development
One of the first decisions facing campuses that have decided to deploy a PKI is whether to build their PKI in house, with the necessary personnel and infrastructure it entails, or to buy their PKI from a vendor, which can have a seemingly high sticker price. What are the driving factors behind this decision? How do you accurately assess all costs, both short- and long-term? How do you measure the benefits/ROI of a given choice? What signing options should you consider? Come to this session to participate in a discussion with panelists who have made decisions in each of these directions.
