Machine identities are exploding in quantity and importance, courtesy of digital transformation, and new applications of PKI including DevOps, Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud applications are surfacing every day. Private keys are the cornerstone of PKI-based authentication and digital signing – yet, they continue to remain under-protected. Private key storage and rotation techniques are often subject to lax security standards – sometimes, they are stored in text documents or event sent over email. In other instances, keys are simply generated on an insecure machine and stored in software that is easily circumvented by cyber criminals.
In the interest of creating a secure future for cyber security, AppViewX and Fortanix are changing the status quo by providing integrate certificate management, key management, Hardware Security Modules (HSM), tokenization, and secrets management to protect the entire data lifecycle.
In this webinar, we will demonstrate how enterprises can securely generate, use, and rotate private keys using a potent combination of HSMs and certificate lifecycle automation. We will also discuss key applications of this joint solution, ranging from single/multi-tenant routes for HSM-enabled database encryption to key generation and rotation for SSL/TLS encryption on F5 BIG-IP devices.
1. The importance of secure key orchestration
2. How HSMs work with certificate lifecycle automation
3. Encrypting inventory databases using an HSM
4. CSR Generation and Key management on F5 devices
