What is Certificate Automation?

Certificate Automation refers to the automation of certificate lifecycle processes such as Certificate Signing Request (CSR) generation, renewal, and installation. Certificate automation, also known as PKI automation, delivers the ability to rapidly replace certificates when needed and is a vital step in achieving crypto-agility. With certificate automation organizations can automate hundreds or thousands of certificates.

DigiCert offers various automation tools including APIs via REST, ACME URL and the innovative DigiCert Automation Manager. DigiCert Automation Manager automates the installation and renewal of private and public OV and EV certificates, while mitigating the risk of opening firewalls to the internet. Choose from an agent-based, sensor-based or a hybrid deployment model for the highest level of flexibility at any scale.
