Entrust Managed Services PKI

Managed PKI for your Organization

Entrust Managed Services PKI establishes and manages certificate-based security across your organization through a reliable, customizable and flexible public key infrastructure (PKI).

Flexible Integration with Client Applications
Digital certificates from Entrust Managed Services PKI unlock security features built into existing applications, like Microsoft® Office® and Adobe Acrobat®.

Using Entrust’s library of toolkits, you can integrate PKI with your unique security applications, such as smart card management systems or combined building computer access cards. The Entrust Authority suite of toolkits lets you integrate certificates into non-CryptoAPI applications that rely on or use Java, the Java Platform, C, C++, IPsec, TLS and more.

Flexible CA Models

Entrust Managed Services PKI is available in several service models to provide maximum flexibility. In all models, your data and access are consistently and strongly protected.
• Entrust Multi-Tenant CA: Offers dedicated CA partitions, a lower cost and pre-established policies.
• Customer-Branded CA: Certificates are under your control and are branded with your organization’s name. Offers a tailored Certificate Policy (CP) and Certificate Practices Statement (CPS).
• Root CA:With your own root CA, you can establish trust with CAs on or off the Entrust site, including Entrust Public Root. Certificates are branded with your organization’s name.

Entrust offers cross-certified CAs to enable you to leverage extended communities of trust (such as U.S. Federal Bridge or CertiPath).

Certificate Integration & Management

Special toolkits allow integration with applications not written for Microsoft® Windows® or CryptoAPI.

Entrust provides flexible enrollment and administration options. There is no need to register users in Active Directory, as with a Microsoft CA. You can supply certificates to your own network of trusted users worldwide.

Manage your certificates through a client-less Web application or with Entrust Entelligence Security Provider, an easy-to-deploy desktop client.

Easily supply certificates to your network of trusted users, remote employees, partners and suppliers through a Web interface. This way, they can sign documents and trust each other’s digital signatures.
