Hello, thank you.
I'm wondering: Where can I go to get answers to basic questions about
SSL? I've been learning about SSL while using OpenSSL to make SSL
certificates for work, and I have a lot of questions.
For example, one of my questions is:
"Why are certificates called certificate *requests*?" I would think that a
request for a certificate would be a message on the order of [a machine
encoded:] "Hello would you please send me your certificate?", or "Hello,
would you please send me your certificate for example.net?"
Instead, I find that a certificate request (crt) is an actual certificate
I'm having difficulty finding in my research, answers to basic questions
like this. What's a good forum on the Internet for finding answers to more
fundamental SSL questions like this?
