Manage client certificates on Chrome devicesTo access some networks and certain internal web resources, users must authenticate using a digital certificate. With client certificates, users of Chrome OS devices can access these types of networks and resources.

To increase the security of internal networks and resources, organizations authenticate, using client digital certificates, users connecting on their employees’ or students’ devices. For example, EAP-TLS authentication (802.1x) provides access to local area networks (LANs), while TLS/SSL authentication provides access to internal web resources.

Registration protocols (e.g. SCEP and EST) differ from one certificate authority to another. In addition, organization-specific processes, controls and rules need to be checked before granting a certificate.

When using the chrome.enterprise.platformKeys API user token (ID field value is “user”), client certificates obtained via extensions are unique to a specific user and device. That is, the certificate is not the same for another user using the same device. When the user logs on to another device, the certificate authority issues a different certificate. Since client certificates are protected by the Trusted Platform Module, they cannot be stolen for installation on another device or hacked. When a user account is removed from a device, the corresponding certificate is also removed.

May 13, 2013 By David Cutanda During my professional life I have had the opportunity to work with different Certification Authorities, as well as to do security consulting regarding the use, management and generation of digital certificates; as a first contribution to this blog, I would like to be able to bring you some of my experience in this field, as well as to introduce you to the subject.

In today’s world, in which the Internet market is booming, it becomes tremendously complicated to maintain the security of data transfers over the network. Since the Internet is an open and completely heterogeneous network, it is difficult to maintain the confidentiality and integrity of communications, as well as to ensure that the sender or recipient of any communication on the network is who he or she claims to be.

As can be seen, in general, the purpose of a digital signature or certificate is very similar to that of the traditional handwritten signature, however the technology behind it is completely different, so the next question we should ask ourselves is: how is it implemented?

The method, they say, is simple for the buyer who needs a fake certificate because he does not want to be vaccinated. Through Telegram groups that are being closed and giving way to new ones to leave no trace, it is offered to “regain freedom”. In September, this editorial office located one of these groups, with about 10,000 subscribers, which referred to the Telegram profile and email of an alleged doctor to make the purchase arrangements. “We will send you the electronic version the same day (of payment) and you will get the paper version depending on the delivery agency’s schedule and your location. But the electronic version is enough,” he promised.

This editorial office has been able to learn that, indeed, after making the payment of 150 euros, through cryptocurrencies, the alleged sellers maintain the alibi for a couple of days. This is the time that, says one of them, it takes to generate the fake certificate. After contacting again after that time to inquire about the purchase, these scammers delete the Telegram conversation and disappear, without responding to the victims again.

The certificates are stored in the “Certificate Store”.

Visit the Electronic ID section for more information. To be able to use the electronic DNI from a computer it is necessary to have a card reader compatible with the DNIe. The reader must comply, at least: In addition, to be able to interact properly with the cryptographic cards (DNIe) in particular, the computer must have installed some software ‘pieces’ called cryptographic modules.

Certificate export is the process of obtaining a copy of the certificate installed on the computer or browser for later use on another computer or process. Sometimes it is necessary to extract a certificate from the store for the following purposes: In the export process we will be prompted or may check a box indicating that we want to export the private key. The export must be done from the vault where the certificate is installed. In the following points you can see the different ways to access the stores available in the computer.
