Secure data exchange is one of the fundamental elements of the digitalization of the factory of today and tomorrow. No matter if on the web or on the factory floor: x.509 certificates facilitate essential cybersecurity mechanisms for reliable communication. Whether for device Identification or safeguarding data communication with TLS, X.509 certificates are the foundation.
The problem? The access: Very often there is no PKI infrastructure to issue and manage certificates.
With the Open Industrial PKI, we offer you a free service for issuing and managing X.509 certificates to make it easier for you to get started in a trusted digital future.
Open Industrial PKI is currently under construction. We are working on policies and an associated framework as well as a collection of tools. If you already want to use Open Industrial PKI today, you are welcome to apply as a beta tester.
Open Industrial PKI is jointly operated by Campus Schwarzwald and Keyfactor.
