Venafi protects machine identities for the largest companies on the planet. Leaders in the Global 5000 rely on Venafi to secure the cryptographic keys and digital certificates that authorize and control all machine-to-machine connections and communications.
Several requirements of NIST 800-171 apply directly to the use of TLS, the management of TLS certificates/keys and the assurance of the authenticity of communications. Several other requirements do not explicitly call out authentication or key management but are affected by the secure use and management of TLS certificates and private keys. This document covers only the NIST 800-171 requirements that apply directly to TLS certificates and private keys.
