There are two actors on a network: people and machines. People rely on usernames and passwords to identify themselves to machines so they can get access to networks and data. Machines also need to identify themselves to each other, but they don't use usernames and passwords. Instead, they use cryptographic keys and digital certificates that serve as machine identities.
