When System A have created a pair of keys you want the CA to create a
certificate for you.
Will it work to have the CA connected to the same network as System A?
Isn't it a risk that someone will pick up System As public key during
transmission and replace it with another.
Do you have to encrypt System As public key with the CA public key.

Happy for someone giving an explanation to how it should work in
practise when transmitting your public key to a CA.
