As enterprises exchange more and more information, securing the information becomes extremely crucial. Authenticity of the information sent and received is equally important. Offices around the world are becoming paperless and concept of digital signature is gaining strong grounds.
The solution to this is to adapt to PKI. PKI also offer other advantages like strong authentication, non-repudiation, guarantying integrity of the information and providing confidentiality. PKI involves management of public and private keys. These keys can be used to digitally sign document, encrypt documents and emails.
We offer the below solutions based on PKI
Strong two Factor Authentication
Certificate Management with Smart Cards
User Provisioning and De Provisioning
Works Flows for temporary access
Setting up CA and RM
Infrastructure to Issue/manage and recover users keys
A public key infrastructure (PKI) is a set of roles, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption.
A public key infrastructure (PKI) is a set of roles, policies, and procedures needed to create, manage, distribute, use, store, and revoke digital certificates and manage public-key encryption. The purpose of a PKI is to facilitate the secure electronic transfer of information for a range of network activities such as e-commerce, internet banking and confidential email. It is required for activities where simple passwords are an inadequate authentication method and more rigorous proof is required to confirm the identity of the parties involved in the communication and to validate the information being transferred.
In cryptography, a PKI is an arrangement that binds public keys with respective identities of entities (like persons and organizations). The binding is established through a process of registration and issuance of certificates at and by a certificate authority (CA). Depending on the assurance level of the binding, this may be carried out by an automated process or under human supervision.
The PKI role that assures valid and correct registration is called a registration authority (RA). An RA is responsible for accepting requests for digital certificates and authenticating the entity making the request. In a Microsoft PKI, a registration authority is usually called a subordinate CA.
An entity must be uniquely identifiable within each CA domain on the basis of information about that entity. A third-party validation authority (VA) can provide this entity information on behalf of the CA.
