Bringing digital signatures and PKI to the masses with Python
Matthias Valvekens

The situation of the past two years has served as a catalyst for further digitalisation of all sorts of administrative processes all over the world. In virtually all of these processes, public-key infrastructure (PKI) plays an important role.

In this talk, you'll get a crash course on what the modern PKI landscape looks like, and on the role that Python can play in making digital signing workflows accessible to a wide range of users in a responsible manner.
