Advantages of the SwissSign Managed PKI service
The SwissSign Managed PKI service lets you manage certificates for your employees, clients and partners yourself – around the clock.
Flexible certificate issuing
Using an automatic interface or our web administration tool, you can immediately issue any type of certificate whenever you need.
The CMC and RFC 5272 interface standards allow you to run a complete autoenrollment process with our partner products.
Certificates you can trust
All common browsers and operating systems support our certificates because they have been rated as trustworthy in the relevant root stores and trust lists.
You benefit from an adaptive pricing model and therefore you always receive the best possible volume discount.
Flexible and scalable
Enjoy the flexibility of scaling the certificate volumes and types whenever you want.
Focus on your core business
Skip the expensive setup and operation required to operate your own PKI.
The SwissSign Managed PKI is available in three different versions.
As a recognised certificate authority (CA), we support Domain Validation (DV), Organisation Validation (OV) and Extended Validation (EV) certificates.

Frequently asked questions
How is billing handled for the MPKI?
Billing occurs annually, before the term of service and for the selected order volume.
How many certificates can I purchase with my MPKI?
There is no volume limit. Certificate volumes exceeding the quantity stated in the initial order will be billed at the end of the contractual period on the basis of the exact quantity used.
The prepaid total for the subsequent year is based on the number of certificates from the previous year.
How do I start using a new MPKI?
How can I add new domains to an existing MPKI?
SSL or email domains are specified without assigning them a specific certificate type. In other words, you can later issue whatever type of SSL certificate you have ordered for all of the specified SSL domains. Similarly, the email certificates you have ordered can be issued for all of the specified email domains.
Domain access permissions
You validate access permissions by publishing a (secret) random value (in the DNS or as a TXT file on the web server), which you access via the MPKI.
How can I modify an existing MPKI contract?
Please contact customer service for more information.
What is the period of notice for cancelling the SwissSign MPKI?
The minimum contract period is one year. The contract can be terminated three months before the end of the contract. If the contract is not cancelled, it will be renewed automatically for an additional contract period of 12 months.
