Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) has become standard for enterprises trying to secure data and authenticate machines on the move. X.509 certificates, often leveraged in the form of SSL/TLS certificates, are just one of the many PKI systems widely adopted by enterprises. All these systems operate on the principle of private and public encryption keys, which are used to encrypt and decrypt information, respectively. This makes a private key the single most important asset of any security infrastructure. Private keys continue to remain under-protected, key storage and rotation techniques are often subject to lax security standards – sometimes, stored in text documents or even sent over email. Fortanix Self-Defending Key Management Service ensures the security of the private keys associated with certificates in the cloud, on-premises or as a hybrid solution. Encrypt and protect private keys using FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified Fortanix HSM.
