Secardeo certLife simplifies the management of digital certificates

Ismaning, July 9, 2018 - Secardeo releases "certLife", a web application for certificate lifecycle management. With this new product in the TOPKI platform, Secardeo is addressing companies that want to make their certificate management more efficient and secure.

In particular, certLife is used to perform central administration tasks by a certificate manager with a web browser. Any certificates for S/MIME, SSL, VPN etc. can be created, renewed, distributed, recovered or revoked on the basis of Windows certificate templates. The certificate database can be intuitively searched and filtered. Automated notifications, such as expiration of a certificate, as well as statistics on the use of the certificates, are increasing control. Keys can be generated decentrally on the Windows client by means of (auto-) enrollment via Secardeo certEP or centrally by the certLife service. In addition, certLife offers a convenient self-service for users and server administrators via web browser.

Key features of certLife are:

  • Certificate management via IIS web application
  • Seamless integration with Active Directory
  • Use of Windows certificate templates
  • Administration of additional metadata
  • Role-based access using AD credentials
  • Self-service for users and administrators
