What is Managed PKI?

Managed PKI refers to the management of digital certificates from a cloud-based solution such as DigiCert® CertCentral. With a digital certificate manager users can easily streamline the issuance, installation, remediation, renewal and automation of TLS/SSL certificates or other PKI certificates. DigiCert offers several solutions for managed PKI including DigiCert® Trust Lifecycle Manager and DigiCert® IoT Trust Manager. Both PKI managers use a container-based, cloud-agnostic implementation that ensures fast and flexible on-premises, cloud and hybrid PKI deployments. These new offerings are built on the DigiCert ONE platform.

DigiCert IoT Trust Manager allows device manufacturers to:

  • provision and embed device identity at any stage of the device lifecycle, from the factory to device deployment on-premises, in the cloud or hybrid environments
  • simplify device identity, authentication, encryption and integrity with a single click
  • marry device data visualization with cryptographic, manufacturing and factory process data
  • support standards-based interoperability with many third-party manufacturing and provisioning systems.

DigiCert Trust Lifecycle Manager allows IT teams to:

  • seamlessly and transparently deploy identity, authentication and access to large user populations quickly and with little to no end-user interaction
  • have flexibility in deployment models, supporting customer deployments in private or public cloud, air-gapped environments, or completely managed by DigiCert
  • customize certificates and tailor deployments to their infrastructure and needs; and
  • manage out-of-the-box and create custom CA hierarchies.
