Safeguard enterprise Secure Shell (SSH) machine identities and the host-to-host connections they enable by discovering, protecting and automating their lifecycle.
Discover SSH keys to create an accurate inventory and begin active monitoring
• Use agent-based and agentless scanning tools
• Organize keys and their metadata into folders and groups
• Integrate with Active Directory, change approvals and workflows
• Apply logical filters to search for known keys.
Learn of policy violations and recommended mitigation actions from a single pane active dashboard
• Identify vulnerabilities that violate policy
• Report on servers, users and access privileges
• Report on SSH key policy violations
• Identify insecure configurations and port forwarding
Specify and enforce SSH key policies and rotate expired keys
• Continuously monitor policy violations with custom remediation
• Log when a key was used and by whom
• Integrate with SIEM and other tools
• Automate provisioning of keys on any device via a self-service UI
Increase SSH Security through Issuance of SSH Certificates Via Pull Provisioning
Reduce the complexity of managing SSH access and improve the security and policy enforcement of SSH access
Benefits of Venafi SSH Certificates
Venafi SSH certificates greatly improve security and policy enforcement because unlike SSH keys, SSH certificates have meta data built-in including an expiration date, this makes them harder to exploit. They also provide better visibility for InfoSec teams by providing insight into who is requesting the certificates.
(PLEASE NOTE - SSH Certificates is currently a feature preview. To access this feature, please contact your account team or Venafi support or fill out the form at https://www.venafi.com/contact-us to contact an account representative)
SSH machine identities are ubiquitous. SSH keys are used in every data center in the world, half of the world’s web servers, and practically every Mac, Unix or Linux computer—whether on-premise or in the cloud. With 50 to 200 SSH machine identities per server, large organizations may have upwards of a million SSH machine identities.Learn more in a white paper
The sheer quantity of SSH machine identities being deployed makes effective management difficult. Yet, cracking just one SSH machine identity will enable attackers to pivot to other systems. With that level of access, attackers can then explore your enterprise’s entire network, until they find the one system that offers up the most lucrative data. Are you sitting on an SSH ticking time bomb?Learn more in a webinar
SSH key management is a difficult task, but it’s vital for your system and company security. Unmanaged keys increase the risk of systemic failure of critical infrastructure because the likelihood of keys being misused, stolen, or used as part of an attack is high. The risks of poorly managed SSH keys include stolen or lost keys, lateral movement and pivoting and weak or duplicated keys that could, in the worst case, bring down critical information systems for months.
