Advanced Key Protect | Venafi Skip to main content

Scale private key security within leading hardware security modules

As an add-on module to the Venafi Platform, Advanced Key Protect applies policy and workflow controls and enables fast, automated orchestration of keys. Together, these capabilities ensure the consistent use of the strongest possible cryptographic keys.

Do you use TLS to secure communication with business-critical systems?

Many organizations struggle with key management issues that result in compromised private keys. You need an easy way to automate private key life cycle management that enforces strict policy control, achieves compliance and centrally manages keys securely, avoiding the risks associated with storing keys in files.

Strong central key generation and HSM key life cycle management

Venafi Advanced Key Protect promotes the use of safe, cryptographic keys by orchestrating HSM-based generation and storage of cryptographically strong keys across the enterprise. Advanced Key Protect improves private key security in two important ways: it allows users to generate strong keys from a central HSM and also provides flexible management of the entire HSM key life cycle for enterprise applications.

After triggering the generation of a key pair by the HSM, Venafi Advanced Key Protect follows one of these two approaches:

Securely maintain private keys on an HSM
  • Orchestrate the connection to the system that needs the certificate
  • Maintain the key pair securely on the HSM for key protection
  • Ensure that the private key never leaves the HSM
  • Supported by Gemalto and Thales HSMs on Apache, Windows IIS and Java
Advanced Key Protect
Install private keys and certificates on a managed application
  • Generate all X.509 and SSH keys in a central HSM
  • Export the key pair from the HSM
  • Install the private key and certificate on the system that will use them
  • Supported by Gemalto HSMs
