There are many aspects where PKI has lately evolved, with a lot of new proposals and standards such as Certificate Transparency, CAA, HSTS, OCSP stapling, etc. compared to the way PKI provided security a decade ago. In this presentation it will be discussed how all these new PKI features are improving and making PKI a more mature solution, and how can be combined with blockchain and used in IoT.

Learning objectives:

1. Understand the new features of PKI, and its combination with blockchain, and its use in IoT.
2. Describe the benefits of using PKI
3. See the current security challenges and how PKI can address them
