What is a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)?

In the field of asymmetric encryption (cryptology and cryptography), a public key infrastructure is a system that makes it possible to issue, distribute and verify digital certificates.

The aim of the public key infrastructure is to ensure the secure exchange of data between participants.
