I have received several emails lately from people who have purchased my Practical Guide to PKI with Windows Server book and from people who have been downloaded my free guide on the same subject. There isn’t a problem with this, I am actually glad that people are reading both publications and have questions about it, but I wanted to set expectations with people whenever they have questions about it.
I have received a lot of good feedback on both the book and the guide, as well as the original multi-post series on the subject, and people seem to find those resources useful. I have had several good back and forth emails on particular issues and environment issues, since PKI implementations are always different and it isn’t always a turnkey solution. I don’t mind answering the odd question or two when I get a chance, but implementing a PKI is a complicated process in some cases and it is not always a quick answer. As stated multiple times, I am not responsible for issues that may arise as a result of following these guides and whenever I respond to questions. Since PKI implementations can be complicated, I am sometimes hesitant to give quick answers, especially when I don’t have all of the required information.
For complicated questions and requests, I do offer full consulting and contracting services through my company, Ten Fifteen Solutions. If you require assistance with implementing a Certificate Authority within your organization, I can certainly try and assist with that. I also offer additional services as well, such as:
- Network Design and Implementation
- Network Security Consultation
- Cloud Migrations and Hybrid Cloud Deployments
- Systems Administration
- Project Implementation
- Technical Writing
I usually get back to potential clients within 24 hours. My rates are negotiable and depending on the amount of work to be done and the type of organization, I will usually offer a flat rate. If you are having an urgent issue such as your network is down, I may not be able to help you due to timing and availability.
