Centrally control CSR creation processes.

Centrally control CSR creation processes.

Organizations generally allow the users to create CSRs (Certificate Signing Requests), obtain and deploy the certificates independently. These certificate requests are not supervised, so it becomes difficult for the administrators to track them. Also, when users generate CSRs independently, they tend to use outdated encryption algorithms and short key lengths that violate the organization's security policies and leaves the network vulnerable to cyber-attacks.

Administrators require a centralized process for regulating the certificate requests, and ensuring that the certificates deployed in the network are not vulnerable.

Key Manager Plus deals with these problems by centralizing the certificate creation process. Self-signed certificates and CSRs can be generated from a central account, in a single step, reducing the hassles involved in certificate creation. The private keys are generated simultaneously during certificate creation and, they are not stored separately, so they cannot be replicated. Also, centralizing the process helps standardize the hashing algorithm, and strong keys can be used for encryption of all certificates. This way, the reliability and security of the certificates is assured.
