Slides for this presentation are found here:
Also, you'll find un-packed examples of X.509 certificates: The CACert.org
Certificate Authority cert (cacert.org.txt), and the CACert.org
certificate used on their HTTPS server at www.cacert.org (cacert.txt).
You'll notice that the CA certificate has an extension that says CA:True,
and the website cert has an extension that says CA:False.
