2021 PKI trends

Each year, Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) become more and more important to maintaining a secure online presence, and 2021 trends suggest this year will not be an exception. PKI provides a variety of security benefits to an organization, including authentication and building a trust between organizations. 2020 has seen a rise in cloud-based Public Key Infrastructures, and the trends for 2021 suggest this will continue into this year. Research into 2021 PKI trends also reveals that PKIs will likely:

  • Be used for authentication in DevOps and Internet of Things (IoT) devices and creation of a chain of trust between these devices
  • See a growth in the adoption of Public Key Infrastructures for both on-premises and cloud-based IT infrastructures
  • See a resurgence around mission critical systems within organizations

How to Secure & Govern a Growing Digital Workforce

Digital identities (machines and human/machine hybrids like assisted bots) are growing rapidly across organizations to enable fast and efficient execution of routine tasks. These digital workers come in many different flavors (e.g., APIs and container-based workloads, assisted and unassisted bots, a variety of IoT devices and robots). Securing and governing the identities and associated secrets of these digital identities at scale requires automation, agility and orchestration. Governing these identities requires centralized rules and oversight, while allowing for decentralized approaches to managing the many different flavors of digital workers.

What should a Modern Certificate Authority look like?

The digital world is experiencing unprecedented growth and interconnectivity due to a perfect storm of conditions over the past few years. Achieving almost a flywheel effect, the advent of many technological innovations – the rise of cloud computing, the emergence of 5G, the proliferation of Internet-of-things (IoT) smart devices – has created immense market opportunities for digital products that interconnect our lives and workplaces. At the center of this explosion of connected devices and software-defined-everything is the ability for these interconnected devices to verify their identity with each other. The industry is quickly converging into using digital certificates to express identity. Join us to see how you should get ready for this new world and plan your infrastructure to be able to accommodate the new scale and security requirements for identity platforms, specifically, using digital certificate and certificate authorities.
