SSH Certificates: How Do OpenSSH Certificates Compare to X.509?

X.509 is the first thing that comes to mind when discussing digital certificates. After all, it is the most widely used digital certificate in the PKI ecosystem and is the core component of SSL/TLS protocols, the technology that powers HTTPS. X.509 was first released on 25 November 1988 and is powerful, extensible and widely supported. But it's not the only certificate format available out there. For example, the popular email encryption program PGP uses a custom certificate format instead of X.509.

Certificate-Based Authentication Best Practices

In a certificate-based authentication, a user or machine proves their identity to the servers and networks with a certificate that is digitally signed by a certificate authority, a trusted centralized entity responsible for issuing and managing certificates. Many popular servers support certificate-based authentication, but people often opt-in for a password or key-based authentication to avoid certificate management overhead.
