SealSign Central Key Control

Secure custody and centralized management of Digital Certificates

The custody and usage management of digital certificates in any medium or large organization has become a complex task that consumes technical resources.

Certificates are commonly installed either in the computer systems of users who need them for their work, a setup which entails significant risks to the organization, or in smartcards that users must bring to each system or device through a reader, which complicates their use.

In both cases, the organization has no mechanisms to register or limit which processes or electronic signatures are made, and there is also a risk of information leak associated with users copying such certificates.

SealSign® Central Key Control lets users store certificates in a centralized, controlled and secure manner in HSM devices that let only authorized users carry out authentication processes, signings or encryption with no need to have keys installed locally in their computers or devices, hence a fully transparent process for users.
