The author of this needs to write a few more on other topics. The succinctness and simplicity (i.e. minimum bits) is a nice change from so many documentation sites. Can Amazon get him to rewrite their documentation?





I suspect it only seems succinct because you're familiar with the details...I like it too for that reason.

However for anyone who doesn't have the requisite background it will just be abstract and impenetrable.


I somewhat agree. I feel like this is a nice glossary that I could hand my boss so he would understand what we’re talking about and stop asking what each one is, but he still wouldn’t really “get” the process for any of the examples.

If it tried to explain the full process you’re now diving into the explanations of GPG and buying SSL certs, etc and that feels like their eyes would simply glaze over.

I would like to see a tad more separation between the types of PKI (specifically GPG vs TLS type clarity).


Not quite - the links are a useful starting point rather than waving hands, saying 'just google it'.
