Hey all, as most I know a lot about some aspects of computers and there's a lot of stuff I don't know as well.


Server certificate issues have been coming up the past couple of years and wanted to learn more about them; like how to be able to discern bogus certs, how to write certs, how to over come cert errors when trying to send mail, etc etc


I'm looking for a 'for Dummies' like book focused soley on certs (or covers certs thoroughly); I really don't want an expensive phone book covering the entire Windows OS or Servers in general.


Anyone have any suggestions?

You mean you want to learn how to create your own certs?
