Re: Need for encryption in WSE 3.0 if using SS-avoid man-in-middle

Hi John,

X509V3 is a certificate type and this is the most poular standard used
currently. Therefore, almost all the certificates mentioned here are of
X509 certificate. Also, there're many different kinds of x509 certificates
according to their usage. And SSL certificate is one of them. This
certificate can be used to identiffy a SSL/HTTPS server which contains both
private and public key(installed on the server). For SSL client-side, you
can import the SSL server certificate's public certificate(only contains
public key that can use to identify the certificate). Such public
certificate can be get through export the server certificate on the server
machine(no include private key).

Windows 2000 or 2003 server has a certificate service, you can install it
and produce different kind of test certificate that can be used in your
local environment.
