Identity Access Management (PKI): Securing Your Resources with Public Key Infrastructure

What is Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)?
  • Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) is a technology that enables secure communication over unsecured networks. At its core, PKI uses a pair of cryptographic keys: a public key, which is shared openly, and a private key, which is kept confidential. PKI is the foundation of various digital security mechanisms, including digital signatures, secure email, and secure socket layer (SSL) encryption for websites.

Partnership with WidePoint
  • Our parent company, WidePoint, is a leading provider of PKI services to the federal government, and we are proud to bring their expertise and experience to the commercial sector. By partnering with WidePoint, we offer enterprise-grade PKI solutions that meet the highest security standards and compliance requirements.

History of PKI

The concept of PKI dates back to the 1970s when Martin Hellman and Whitfield Diffie introduced the idea of public-key cryptography. The RSA algorithm, developed by Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir, and Leonard Adleman, was the first practical implementation of public-key cryptography, and it laid the foundation for the development of PKI.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, as the internet started to grow, the need for secure online communication became apparent. PKI emerged as the preferred technology for enabling secure communication between users, devices, and websites. Over the years, PKI has become an essential component of modern digital security and is widely used in various applications, from secure email to digital signatures and SSL certificates.

Key Benefits of IT Authorities’ PKI

Identity Verification

Identity Verification

We use PKI to verify the identity of users and devices before granting them access to your resources. This ensures that only authorized individuals can access your systems and data.

Access Control

Access Control

Our IAM service manages user permissions and access rights, ensuring that users only have access to the resources they need for their roles. This prevents unauthorized access and reduces the risk of data breaches.

Secure Communication

Secure Communication

We use PKI to encrypt communication between users, devices, and servers, ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of your data.

Audit and Compliance

Audit and Compliance

Our IAM service provides detailed logs and reports of user activities and access events. This helps you monitor and analyze user behavior, detect potential security threats, and comply with regulatory requirements.

Real World Examples

Imagine your organization has a cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) system. Our IAM service would use PKI to verify the identity of your employees before granting them access to the CRM system. This would ensure that only authorized employees can access the system, preventing unauthorized access and data breaches.

Suppose your organization needs to exchange confidential information with a partner via email. Our IAM service would use PKI to encrypt the email communication, ensuring that only the intended recipient can read the email, protecting the confidentiality of the information.

Imagine your organization needs to sign a contract with a vendor. Our IAM service would use PKI to create a digital signature for the contract, verifying the identity of the signer and the integrity of the document.
