Issues in SSL Certificates Management

As enterprises and governments rely more and more on SSL, the number of certificates in use can grow into the hundreds or even thousands. Along with the increase in numbers, the cost and effort of managing these certificates also increases. There are three key areas impacting the cost and complexity of managing SSL certificates today: SSL Certificate Features, Account Administration and Lifecycle Management.

This white paper explores each of these issues and identifies opportunities for customers to reduce the cost and complexity of using SSL. These opportunities are mapped to the capabilities of the Entrust Certificate Management Service that provides a complete offering for managing SSL certificates.
