The foundation of trusted Internet communications are Secure Socket Link (SSL) certificates, an encryption technology installed on Web servers that permits transmission of sensitive data through an encrypted connection. Using a public-key infrastructure (PKI), SSL certificates authenticate the end-use Website and the endpoint server, making it difficult for those sites to be imitated or forged.The acquisition of SSL certificates should always be a relatively easy experience; however, the purchasing decision should never be regarded lightly.

Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the foundation of today’s enterprise security. But most PKI lacks central visibility, consistent processes, and refresh progress validation. This leads to errors and missed system updates that result in policy violations and costly business interruptions. You can solve these issues with a PKI refresh that delivers automated key and certificate security and management.

Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.

The SANS 20 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense offers a blueprint of prioritized guidance to reduce risk. New updates to the SANS 20 signify the growing need to secure digital certificates and cryptographic keys to preserve trusted communications for all of your critical systems and your organization’s interactions with customers and partners. Too often cyberattacks on keys and certificates are successful because basic security controls are not present or not properly configured. Download the Solution Brief to learn how you can effectively build scalable controls and reduce risk: • Manage the rapid growth in certificates • Gain visibility into where keys and certificates are located • Secure your certificates against cyberattacks • Enforce automation of certificate issuance and renewal

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.

If your company relies on passwords to prevent unauthorized computer access, or low-tech memory cards (e.g., swipe cards) for facility access, you have security on par with the average 1980s car. Smart credentials — embedded in plastic smartcards, USB tokens or mobile devices — offer companies advanced and versatile user authentication features. This white paper discusses the advantages of using smart credentials for multifunction access; describes the hardware and software components used in a smart credential environment; and provides questions to ask when searching for a smart credential solution provider.

Upon issuance, all SSL digital certificates have a finite lifespan and are no longer recognized as valid upon expiration. Certificates may have varying periods of validity and are often set to expire anywhere between one and five years based on company policy and/or cost considerations. This guide — intended for IT and security professionals — outlines the key elements of a certificate lifecycle management process and how to provide adequate tools and training to implement this process.

SSL Certificates have been in use for almost 15 years, and they continue to serve a vital role in protecting data as it travels across the Internet and other networks. From online financial transactions to e-commerce to product development, SSL Certificates make it possible for users around the world to communicate sensitive information with the confidence that it is safe from malicious hackers. The Internet has evolved in innumerable ways over the past decade and a half; so why do SSL Certificates continue to instill trust? Simply put, SSL Certificates are very effective in protecting data in transit. Yet, customers transacting on websites and systems that are protected by SSL security still face serious threats . One key reason for this danger: poor SSL Certificate management. Enterprises with hundreds of SSL Certificates from several different providers could lose track of certificates in their environment. This white paper will present the pitfalls associated with poor SSL Certificate management, why they are potentially dangerous to the enterprise, and how enterprises can keep track of SSL Certificates effectively.

"SSL certificates have moved beyond the ‘Buy’ page. They are embedded in your business. In fact, SSL Certificates are a business-critical part of your IT infrastructure. However, managing individual certificates in a large organization is complicated by multiple locations, many servers, different business units, and rapidly growing Web-based services. The risks of hiccups and problems increases with the number of certificates, including lost sales when customers see security warnings about expired certificates on your site, damage to your brand and consumer trust because of problems with certificates and more. With these risks in mind, this guide provides five simple steps for IT professionals to take control of SSL certificates across the enterprise, and recommendations centralizing certificate management throughout their lifecycle."

Without trust, no website or online service can succeed in the competitive online marketplace. This year has seen a spate of breaches that have targeted the systems of Certificate Authorities (CAs), the companies that prove websites and services are secure and safe to use. Some of these attacks have undermined the trusting relationship between users and even well-known online brands. The changing security landscape has demonstrated not all CAs are the same, and choosing the right CA is critical to running and maintaining a safe and trusted online business. This white paper looks at the role of CAs in web security, including what measures a CA can take to promote trust in its certificates and the criteria to consider when choosing the best CA for the job.
