Title: SSLAdmin, Microsoft’s public and internal CA

Summary: As one might expect of a company the size of Microsoft, the company operates a significant infrastructure for issuing and managing certificates using a custom system known as “SSLAdmin”. Built over decades, with multiple redundancies and controls, as well as an external auditing process, this system powers a massive amount of websites, from itself to hundreds of Azure services, some of which require thousands of certificates issued daily. This 45-minute presentation will explore the technology concepts behind this system and what makes it unique, in addition to some fascinating stories from the trenches and lessons-learnt from battle-scars.

Erez Benari is a former engineer, journalist and author living in Redmond, Washington. Benari’s career spans several decades with some of the best-known companies in the world, including Intel, Microsoft and NVidia. His work, which focused mostly on Information Security, included many years on the ISA Server Dev & Test team in Haifa, Israel, as well as supporting Microsoft’s forefront line of products IAG, UAG and TMG. Later on, Benari served as program manager for IIS and for Azure Websites. In his final role with Microsoft, Benari operated the SSLAdmin application as part of Microsoft IT. In early 2022, Benari retired and now spends his time as an artist and social-event organizer.

(ISC)2 Community

Are you aware that (ISC)2 has a community place for cybersecurity professionals?

#Copied from here

Our online Community is a place for cybersecurity professionals – including (ISC)² members, non-members, certification candidates and others – to connect, collaborate and share knowledge and best practices related to the very broad topic of security. This encompasses discussions around new technologies, best practices, new regulations, professional development, the challenges and opportunities facing the cybersecurity workforce, ways to make the most of your (ISC)2 certification and membership, and much more. We would like to keep this Community a place for appropriate cybersecurity topics and encourage all off-topic discussions to be held elsewhere.

The Seattle Chartering Chapter would like to encourage all members to join the discussion at
