Key-based authentication generally works by creating a pair of keys: one private and one public. For security reasons, the private keys are generally stored in a centralized location while the public keys are distributed throughout the network. However, there are times when your network requires SSH access between two servers outside Key Manager Plus, meaning you need to distribute the private keys. But this is highly error prone, and deploying private keys to multiple remote servers manually is time consuming.
Key Manager Plus expedites this process by enabling users to directly push the private keys from the central key repository (the Key Manager Plus server) to other servers. This way, you can easily and also securely deploy the selected SSH keys to required servers, preventing downtime and connection errors.
Key Manager Plus is integrated with ManageEngine’s Password Manager Pro, to provide unified privileged identity management platform.
ManageEngine’s Key Manager Plus enables us to stay on top of SSL certificates for all of our websites. With Key Manager Plus, we’re able to monitor which certificates are nearing expiration and roll out new certificates in a timely manner.Ken Odibe Senior cloud infrastructure consultant, Sapphire systems.
