Module 5 of C1b3rWall Academy on “Intelligence. Sources for research” brings an insightful lecture on cybersecurity. This time Sergio Rodriguez Gijon from Hack by Security introduces us to the importance of digital certificates and the application of OSINT.

Sergio is director of training at Hack by Security. He has experience in the IT sector through sysadmin jobs and database administration tasks with Microsoft SQL Server. He is also a pentesting audit technician. The objective of his presentation is to learn how to avoid perimeter measures in order to be able to perform tests aimed at audits.

Security certificates

Digital security certificates are a very important factor for today’s communications because they provide a secure communications channel (the public key factor in an asymmetric encryption method) and, in addition, the certificates confirm the legitimate identity of the domain to which it is associated.

Secure channels are characterized by the fact that the communications channel is encrypted, and, in addition, a secure certificate provides the legitimacy of the domain.
