Helps Customers Achieve 100% Secure Web
HID Global announced its Public Key Infrastructure-as-a-service (PKIaaS) platform now supports the widely adopted Automated Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol. The industry-standard ACME protocol is purpose-built to bring single-command simplicity to the previously manual job of managing digital certificates for creating secure web connections.
WHO: HID was an early supporter of the ACME Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standard and, as the original cross-signature for the protocol’s first digital certificates, helped fuel its adoption along with the hypertext transfer protocol secure (HTTPS) websites that ACME enables.
WHAT: HID has added momentum to a 100% secure web through the PKIaaS connector model it uses with its HID Account Certificate Manager (ACM) platform. It eliminates the cost, complexity, and risks of using intermediary “command and control” management platforms to install ACME and other automated certificate utilities. HID supports the most recent ACME protocol (ACMEv2) released in March 2018 and enables users to control which processes are automated. Organizations can easily add ACME and other commercial certificate utilities to the HID ACM platform, which supports the industry’s broadest range of certificate automation requirements.
The cloud-based HID PKIaaS platform brings trust to the enterprise and its computers, network devices, IoT systems and e-commerce transactions.
ACME is a communications protocol for automating digital certificate lifecycle events between certificate authorities and their users’ web servers, simplifying deployment and reducing the cost of using PKI to connect browsers and apps to HTTPS websites.
