PKI and Certificate Lifecycle Management
Producing and Managing Electronic Certificates
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a system that manages digital keys and certificates to secure online communication. Based on asymmetric cryptography, it uses a pair of keys (public and private) to encrypt and decrypt data, ensuring confidentiality and authentication. PKI is vital for strong online authentication, secure web browsing, email encryption, and digital signatures, safeguarding all digital transactions for private and public organizations.
Certificates are used to secure server networks. Efficient management of a large number of servers and several PKI systems already deployed requires an automated process to ensure complete coverage and monitoring. This automated process is commonly known as Certificate Lifecycle Management (CLM).
It encompasses the creation, issuance, renewal, and revocation of digital certificates, such as SSL/TLS certificates. It ensures certificates are valid, secure, and up to date. This process involves key generation, certificate signing, periodic renewal, and revocation in case of compromise or expiration, maintaining security in online transactions.
