Digital Identity Proof for Man and Machine

In online transactions digital certificates are used to authenticate users or technical components and to sign and encrypt data and information. Digital certificates ensure confidentiality and integrity when transferring data for e. g. online banking or shopping. And they are also used by smart meters or in connected vehicles. To generate, use and manage these digital certificates, a public key infrastructure (PKI) is needed.

In the past, secunet was significantly involved in the development of all certification authorities accredited under the German Digital Signature Act. Today, we are perfectly familiar with the eIDAS Regulation which sets standards regarding cross-border “electronic identification” and “trust services” for electronic transactions throughout Europe. Our experts offer holistic expertise from more than 350 PKI projects of different sizes in governmental applications as well as in the industrial sector. You could therefore refer to us as an extremely experienced partner for the implementation of holistic public key infrastructures which have been customised to address the individual customer needs.

We have bundled our project experience in our own PKI solution: secunet eID PKI Suite is - different from what you may expect from the name - a tried and tested, completely modular public key infrastructure for the use with official documents as well as for all other applications. Depending on the application and security requirements, it is also available as a certified version according to Common Criteria EAL+4. Whether security organisations, operators of critical infrastructures, the armed forces or customers from the automotive sector – the eID PKI Suite represents a reliable security infrastructure and proof of identity in the digital world for all of them.
