For those organisations engaging in the connected economy trust is everything. Ensuring your customers have a secure and safe experience when using your services ultimately is a culmination of a myriad of processes, services and infrastructure all of which start with ensuring secure communications. Secure communications require a secure and stable Public Key Infrastructure (PKI); an area always overlooked and overcomplicated but is the corner stone of secure communications in the modern age.

Raidiam Connect PKI Services is part of a suite of technology enablers available to answer the needs of your connected economy journey

Introducing Raidiam Connect PKI Services, part of the Raidiam Connect technology enablers designed to provide a safe, secure, light touch solution to answer the key questions of compliance and operational readiness in today’s API connected economy.

What does it do?

The Raidiam Connect PKI is a comprehensive certificate authority that makes the management of certificates simple. By offering a completely RESTFul API for certificate management, the Raidiam Connect PKI service can be secured like all other services in an IT Estate. By layering on Authorization and Authentication services like those available in the Raidiam Connect Trust Services, organisations can empower technology professionals and processes to self manage their certificates whilst ensuring that they remain in complete control of their security estate.

The Raidiam Connect PKI offers both standard certificate status validation processes, CRL and OCSP both of which can be deployed globally and in an auto scaling mechanism to support extreme load and throughput.

Crucially, the Raidiam Connect PKI can take full availability of the power of the cloud to support limitless scaling, on demand compute resource use only and unlimited certificate issuance where the cost of certificate issuance is limited to the cost of compute and storage. This offers tremendous cost savings when compared with competitor certificate authorities.

Getting PKI right historically has been challenging for organisations of all sizes and required teams of specialist security resources. For organisations that are struggling to find solutions for implementing a versatile and flexible Certificate Authority, the Raidiam Connect PKI Services module provides the following:
