PKI solutions for trusted digital identities – IDnomic
What is a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)?
PKI is a set of policies, processes, and technologies used to issue trusted identities and secure communications.
PKI uses public key cryptography and electronic certificates to verify, enroll, and certify users and machines.
With PKI, organizations establish and maintain a trustworthy networking environment by using strong authentication, data encryption and digital signature.
What are the key components of a PKI?
The Public key Infrastructure (PKI) includes various components that work together to deliver and manage digital identities in the form of certificates. The key components are described below:
- Certificate Authority Module: ID CA
ID CA is a trust entity that enables secure, centralized management (creation, organization and maintenance) of Certificate Authority lifecycles and the production of digital certificates. ID CA guarantees certificate integrity and the authenticity of the data contained in the certificates that are issued.
- Registration authority module for objects and machines: ID RA
ID RA is a Registration Authority in charge of checking the credentials of a certificate requester. It also offers an easy way to manage the workflow of certificates.
- Credential management system module for users: CMS
The CMS enables complete management of user certificate lifecycles and facilitates the global administration of cryptographic media, providing administrators with a single and secure system to manage all user identities. The CMS covers all security needs and integrates with third party software solutions such as mobile device management (MDM) and Single Sign-on (SSO) >>.
What are electronic certificates used for?
► Strong Authentication for users (smart cards/USB token based), web servers (SSL/TLS), Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
► Electronic signatures to provide integrity and non-repudiation of transactions
► Data confidentiality for data at rest, in use and in transit
► Document and code signing.
