Increase SSH Security through Issuance of SSH Certificates Via Pull Provisioning

Venafi SSH certificates greatly improve security and policy enforcement because unlike SSH keys, SSH certificates have meta data built-in, including an expiration date, making them harder to exploit.  They also provide InfoSec teams improved visibility and insights into who is requesting the certificates. 

Key Benefits:

  • Simplified SSH Management
  • Increased Security 
  • Ephemeral Credentials
  • Out of the box Integrations and Configurations

Features:

  • Organizations can now use Venafi SSH Protect to issue SSH certificates for client and host authentication
  • InfoSec teams can sign SSH certificates using the built-in certificate authority or create multiple certificate authorities and define specific issuance restrictions
  • Organizations can protect the keys that sign SSH certificates by storing them in an HSM, increasing security and helping prevent misuse
  • InfoSec teams can validate that all certificate requests are compliant with restrictions configured by them
  • Developers can quickly and easily adopt SSH certificates through integrations with multiple configuration solutions
    • Native integration for Ansible to request SSH certificates
    • Native integration for Terraform to request SSH certificates
    • Utilize VCert command line utility to request SSH certificates for Windows, Linux, and macOS 
    • Software development kit (SDK) for Go, Python, and Java to request SSH certificates

How many SSH keys are you using?

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.

Do SSH keys leave your sensitive systems vulnerable?

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?

SSH Keys
Are your SSH keys exposed to exploit?

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. Do you know how secure or vulnerable your SSH keys and key pairs are?
