Rethinking Public Key Infrastructures and Digital Certificates
by Stefan A. Brands
Publisher: The MIT Press 2000
Number of pages: 356

Such certificates function in much the same way as cinema tickets or subway tokens: anyone can establish their validity and the data they specify, but no more than that.
