Managing cryptographic keys is a critical part of the information lifecycle. Keys are used to secure data-at-rest (e.g. in databases) and data-in-transit (e.g. to secure connections between systems). Cryptographic keys are also used as the cornerstone for digital identities, enabling digital signatures and establishing trust in various ecosystems.
Anyone who works with cryptography knows that managing
cryptographic keys can be a terrible headache. That is certainly
the case for large organisations that use cryptography for a
variety of applications. Crypto is most often considered a
necessary evil but it keeps getting bigger and that increases the
exposure to risk in fundamental production systems.
The main problems associated with cryptographic key management include:
There is a plethora of other problems associated with encryption key management. Cryptomathic takes a practical approach to key management by applying a secure structure, which is configurable to support an organisations optimal processes. Our solutions also provide an overview of cryptographic devices, their status and can even manage and update them automatically.
