Protecting federal agencies’ machine identities

Keys and certificates are used to uniquely identify and create trusted connections between machines, devices and systems. They govern the flow of information to trusted machines and prevent the flow of information to those that are not trusted.

Protecting federal agencies’ machine identities

Keys and certificates are used to uniquely identify and create trusted connections between machines, devices and systems. They govern the flow of information to trusted machines and prevent the flow of information to those that are not trusted.

White Building

The Venafi Trust Protection Platform helps federal agencies manage and secure the cryptographic keys and digital certificates that make up machine identities. Using the Venafi Platform, agencies can efficiently orchestrate the entire machine identity life cycle, keeping communications between machines secure and private. It also ensures that certificates are up to date and have not expired—both of which can cause an outage. Built to withstand the rigors of even the most classified networks, the Venafi Platform will help you comply with mandates that pertain to protecting machine identities.

The federal government mandates strong protection of machine identities

Federal agencies and those who interface with them are among the most significant cyberattack targets, attracting the most resourceful and well-positioned hackers—from nation-states to malicious insiders and highly experienced cybercriminals. As we learned with Snowden and WikiLeaks, hackers have the tools to forge machine identities, allowing them to hide in encrypted traffic, install malware, remove sensitive data and evade other security controls.

These Risks Have Resulted In The Following Guidance:
  • OMB M-15-13 (HTTPS-Only standard) mandates that federal agencies and those interfacing with them encrypt communications using TLS.
  • The DHS Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) program BOUND-E is an additional requirement that addresses the need to monitor and protect associated keys and certificates.
  • OMB M-15-13 dictates that solutions must allow for rapid updates to keys and certificates.
  • The most mission-critical and classified networks require Common Criteria Certification for hardware and software devices and often have additional requirements for specialized security hardware to manage keys.

Venafi safeguards machine-to-machine communications

The Venafi Platform provides services and controls that allow visibility, intelligence and automation of your keys and certificates throughout their life cycle. It allows you to identify and respond quickly to events that require you to remediate key vulnerabilities and, in some cases, require a rapid update or agency-wide replacement of all or many of your certificates.

The Platform has the capabilities to address requirements for even the most secure federal agencies and national security systems:
  • The Platform received Common Criteria Certification See NIAP certification link.
  • The Platform runs on Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 in FIPS mode, and TPP uses Microsoft FIPS-certified libraries for cryptography operations.
  • The Advanced Key Protect option integrates with one or more FIPS 140-2 Level 2 configured HSMs to maximize the security of the assets it manages. It stores and secures the symmetric keys used for encrypting private keys and other sensitive information in the platform’s database.
