I still cant understand why you want to implement it..
anyway, maybe you wanna do some R&D...

First try to get some basics of encrypted data transmission...
like, get to know syncronous and asyncronous encry... ( i assume that u r starting from scratch)
if these sound too basic to you then move on to Open PKI(where verizon come in to play)
and Closed PKI

If you know all these theory and just wanting to do some practical implementation...
then... please tell us what actaully you are trying to achieve... its not like you setup a samba or apace.. its a little more complicated than that.

we are doing a simple campus Pki implementation on a linux platform. we are not doing it from scratch. There are few questions we would like to ask...
1) how do we come up with a PKI Design?
2) Do u know of any softwares which we could use to create the CA and to use it to enrol, issue, revoke and renew digital certificates?
The problem is we are still stuck at the fundamentals of it. We did research for about 5-6 weeks already but still have some doubts.
