This paper reveals how not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.
This is the second part of the Ponemon Institute’s 2015 Cost of Failed Trust Report, which reveals the damaging impacts on global
business from unprotected cryptographic keys and digital certificates. This new report reveals that most companies lose customers, suffer costly outages, fail audits, and experience breaches due to unprotected and poorly managed keys and certificates.
PKI is becoming a critical underpinning to help organizations succeed as they roll out new digital business models. Establishing a trusted infrastructure through PKI will help businesses take smart risks, evolve quickly and manage relationships with customers, partners, vendors and employees more effectively.
Document signing certificates enable organizations to digitally sign Adobe®, Microsoft Office® and other document types, marking them with visual trust indicators that verify the publisher’s identity—an indication that the document has not been altered.
With document signing certificates organizations can authenticate documents, allowing for secure and efficient electronic transmission of official papers including legal documents, invoices, engineering plans and diagrams, diplomas, charters and more while reducing costs associated with printing and maintaining paper files.
This white paper will discuss:
The history of document signing
What digital signatures are and how they function
The benefits and objectives of implementing document signing certificates
Real world use cases of document signing certificates
This technical case study addressing key and certificate security issues is designed for security conscious enterprises to understand real-life attack scenarios that threaten their businesses in today’s world. This white paper demonstrates a recent attack that used cryptographic keys and digital certificates as well as guidance on how to protect certificates and keys and quickly discover and remediate breaches. This paper should be read by more technical IT security sta? who are interested in detailed attack methods and remediation tactics. The executive summary is intended for IT Security leaders (CISOs and their direct reports) and addresses the proof-of-concept attack impacts on the business.
Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
We rely on cryptographic keys and digital certificates for encryption and authentication. But certificates can, and do, expire, creating costly outages. Organizations need visibility, continuous surveillance, policy enforcement, and automation to eliminate outages caused by expired certificates and secure their keys and certificates.
The SANS 20 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense offers a blueprint of prioritized guidance to reduce risk. New updates to the SANS 20 signify the growing need to secure digital certificates and cryptographic keys to preserve trusted communications for all of your critical systems and your organization’s interactions with customers and partners.
Too often cyberattacks on keys and certificates are successful because basic security controls are not present or not properly configured. Download the Solution Brief to learn how you can effectively build scalable controls and reduce risk:
• Manage the rapid growth in certificates
• Gain visibility into where keys and certificates are located
• Secure your certificates against cyberattacks
• Enforce automation of certificate issuance and renewal
Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) operators have proven they can breach enterprises like yours by undermining your critical security controls when you fail to protect digital certificates and cryptographic keys. Not securing all of your keys and certificates enables cybercriminals to bypass controls like threat detection, data protection, firewalls, VPNs, DLP, privileged access, and authentication systems that you expect will mitigate threats.
This whitepaper reveals how Entrust Authority Security Manager helps organisations easily manage their security infrastructure, and allows easy management of the digital keys and certificates that secure user and device identities.

This paper reveals how Entrust Authority Security Manager, the world's leading public key infrastructure (PKI), helps organizations easily manage their security infrastructure, and allows easy management of the digital keys and certificates that secure user and device identities.
Whether it's a smartcard for physical and logical access, soft tokens on a mobile device, or a unique grid card for strong authentication to a VPN, organizations can consolidate all authentication processes with a single, proven solution.
Digital certificates have emerged to serve as the trust foundation for identities, communication, transactions and information security due to their flexibility in terms of deployment and their high level of inherent security.
Entrust IdentityGuard Cloud Services provide digital certificate and identity management solutions that bring together all certificate services, tools and security under a single cloud-based service. It’s a simple, strong and easy solution to issue and manage identities through their lifecycle via the cloud.
The use of non-fully qualified domain name (FQDN) certificates is being deprecated by November 1, 2015. Existing certificates containing non-FQDN names will be revoked by all public CAs by October 1, 2016. Entrust provides a straightforward option that allows the continued use of non-registered names by deploying cost-effective Entrust Private SSL Certificates.
Managing the purchase, deployment, renewal and expiry of digital certificates for multiple Web servers, purposes and users — sometimes in many different locations — can be time-consuming and costly.
Entrust IdentityGuard Cloud Services SSL is a self-service application designed to streamline certificate management while providing secure certificates from a trusted brand in online security.
