What does a client do to verify a server certificate?
Posted on 2010-11-30
My first question is What specifically does a client do to verify a certificate that it was given by a web server(or anything really) is valid?
Part 2 is I am upgrading a MS 2003 Ent enterprise CA to 2008R2 Enterprise, well really I am migrating it to a new VM with the same name and a different IP address. In the process there is a small point where the old CA will be down, the new will be up but not have the config restored yet. Will this affect any communications that were started before the migration or any new communications?
