Certificates for secure machine communication
Machine certificates are used to ensure secure communication between devices (so-called M2M communication). They create the foundation for trust in connected industry and on the Internet of Things. They provide each workpiece and each machine with an unambiguous identity that they can use in the digital world to identify themselves to connected devices, persons and systems. This ensures that only authorized devices can access your data and that communication between the devices is secure.

Machine certificates in use
Our certificates are produced in Germany according to the highest security standards. Machine certificates can only be purchased via the Certificate Service Manager (CSM), Bundesdruckerei's managed PKI platform, and not in the form of individual requests.
Secure authentication and encryption on the Internet of Things: Using machine certificates, a smart meter, for instance, can authenticate itself to the public network and can communicate with the terminal device in an encrypted manner.
Securing production environments and access by remote maintenance in Industry 4.0: Certificates like the Advanced Device ID ensure that remote production environments, for instance, are accessed via a public network through a secure channel.
Secure authentication and communication for autonomous driving: Thanks to secured authentication of devices and encrypted communication between the vehicle and device, traffic lights and the vehicle, for instance, can interact without disruption.
