Managing and requesting digital certificates

Using a web interface or automated with one of our partner solutions, certificates are issued, requests approved or certificates revoked.

Product details

The solution and its components

Companies and organizations themselves request and manage certificates with the CSM – all on a single platform. This reduces work, costs and time. You always have full control of your certificate stock – with no compromise on security. Access for authorized users to the web portal is secured with SSL and smartcard certificates.

Direct issuance of many different certificates following initial identity verification

Pre-verified organizational attributes, domains and applicant authorizations enable you to issue certificates immediately. The multifunctional certificates cover a wide range of applications, such as signing and encrypting e-mails (S/MIME), authenticating users and devices in networks and digitally signing or sealing documents. You can add new organizations or domains to your account at any time.

Integration of the API into your digital workflow

By integrating the CSM API into your IT processes, you can completely automate the lifecycle of your user certificates and ensure an Active Directory connection. This enables you to use your existing IT infrastructure and provide all users, devices and servers with certificates at short notice, thus eliminating the need to manage your own PKI. Upon request, we will be happy to support you with offers tailored to your needs.

Finely graded user authorization levels

Using flexible rights and role models, administrators can determine which employees can request, release, renew or revoke certificates.

Several organizations in one customer account

Register and manage multiple companies or organizations within a single account. This enables flexible mapping of the structure of a corporate group or different customers via a CSM account so that they can be served centrally with certificates.

Significant cost reduction

Our managed PKI service offers you steep volume discounts and at the same time eliminates the effort of setting up and managing your own PKI.
