Create and manage the entire lifecycle of digital certificates with PKI as a Service

Infrastructure as a service

Public Key Infrastructure as a Service (PKIaaS for short) offers all the features and benefits of a proprietary Public Key Infrastructure, but without requiring the physical investments and challenges of hosting.

A public key infrastructure (PKI) creates and manages the entire lifecycle of digital certificates. Digital certificates are proofs of identification issued to individuals, legal entities or services.

The PKI as a Service (PKIaaS) solution offers PKI operations that are based on Namirial’s hardware and software infrastructure, including technology services, business process consulting, procedures, human resources, legal and security aspects. This provides a complete PKI with the latest technology in terms of security, availability, performance, functionality, services, and compliance with regulations and standards. All, however, without direct technology or maintenance costs.

Optimize processes with an innovative and strategic choice, ensuring security in all areas

Ensure confidentiality and authenticity of data in particularly sensitive contexts with the most advanced technologies

The components of PKI as a Service

Validation Authority (VA)

Automated certificate validation service via certificate revocation lists (CRLs) and online certificate status protocol (OCSP).

Time Stamping Authority (TSA)

A reliable time and date certification service that allows the existence of a digital document to be proven at a specific point in time, ensuring its integrity.

Centralized Certificate Custody Service (CCCS)

Service for centralized backup of all certificates issued by your organization, allowing them to be used from any Internet-connected device.

Electronic Signature Service (ESS)

A REST API simplifies the rapid and secure use of electronic signatures and seals in existing processes or business applications of enterprise organizations.
