One of the first decisions facing campuses that have decided to deploy a PKI is whether to build their PKI in house, with the necessary personnel and infrastructure it entails, or to buy their PKI from a vendor, which can have a seemingly high sticker price.

What signing options should you consider? Come to this session to participate in a discussion with panelists who have made decisions in each of these directions.
