Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a system where digital certificates are used to increase the reliability and scalability of authentication. Using certificate authentication requires that certificates are first created with certification authority (CA) software. For more information on certificates, see SSH Tectia Client/Server Product Description.
The Certificates page of the Settings dialog can be used to control the user's certificates.
