dc.description.abstract With billions of users on the Internet, more interactions will occur between strangers, i.e., entities that have no pre-existing rela tionship and may not share a common security domain. Before strangers can conduct sensitive interactions, a sufficient level of mutual trust must be es tablished. Traditional security approaches based on identity within the local securi ty domain now become less efficient and reliable. Users are unknown at the time entering system so that the system can not store identities before and th en it does not determine whic h set of roles is mapped to users. Automated trust establishment offers a solu tion to this practical problem. With automated trust establishment, stra ngers establish trust by exchanging digital certificates , the online analogues of paper certifi cates: digitally signed assertions by a certificate issuer about the certificate owner. Public-key certificate is one of the most important types of digita l certificate, in which a publ ic-key value is associated with a particular person or entity. A public-key certificate is signed using the issuer’s private key, and can be verified using the issuer’s public key. Now, the authorization, which consists of authentication based on trusted public-key certificates and direct assignment of a set of corresponding roles, is more secure. In this thesis, we study encryption, messa ge digest, signatur e algorithm and public key certificates in terms of implementing a prototype of a system which issues public-key certificates. University of Agricu lture and Forestry of Vietnam is chosen as a case study of such system and public -key certificates have instances as electronic degrees for graduate d student of the university.
