By 2021, organizations with crypto-agility plans in place will suffer 60% fewer cryptographically-related security breaches and application failures than organizations without a plan.
Every certificate expires, and every algorithm evolves. With advancements in computing power, the risk of breakable crypto increases with each day. Sudden compromises or deprecation of outdated algorithms can seriously impact the security in your organization if you don’t have the right tools in place to adapt effectively.
Crypto-agility means knowing everywhere cryptography is used in your organization, how it is being used, and having the tools and strategy in place to quickly identify issues and replace outdated crypto (e.g. protocols, algorithms, certificates, etc.) without intense manual effort or disruption to business-critical applications.
Why Crypto-Agility Matters
The sheer number of keys and digital certificates in use across organizations has skyrocketed, making it much more difficult for security teams to respond effectively when something goes wrong.
If a CA is breached, all certificates are rendered untrusted, requiring you to replace the root of trust and all affected certificates.
Algorithms in use today will inevitably be outdated and replaced with newer, stronger alternatives that will force the widespread replacement of weak keys and certificates.
Discovery of a bug in crypto-libraries often means generating new keys and re-issuing certificates to the impacted devices or applications.
Static approaches are inherently insecure in an evolving crypto-landscape.
- Poor Visibility: Security teams lack insight into the protocols, algorithms, keys and certificates in use throughout their environment.
- Uncontrolled Issuance: Lack of control over certificate procurement and policy enforcement leaves security teams blind to weak or rogue certificates issued by enterprise teams.
- Inability to Adapt: It can take weeks (even months) to track down and swap out dated or non-compliant certificates using manual processes.
Identify and remediate risks with crypto-agile automation.
Keyfactor provides the tools to identify weak or non-compliant certificates, revoke and replace them, and easily switch CAs and update roots of trust at scale.
- Inventory Assets: Locate thousands of keys and certificates across your network, devices, and CAs and bring them into a single inventory.
- Identify Risks: Actively monitor certificate issuance and deployment to identify the use of weak keys or algorithms in real-time.
- Respond Effectively: Rapidly re-issue or renew a certificate or group of certificates from a new CA in the event of a large-scale compromise.
- Automate Everything: Make it a seamless transition with automated renewal and provisioning across thousands (or millions) of devices.
