It is All About Identities – Tech Meetup

Join Keyfactor and Fortanix for a live Tech Meetup about PKI, signing, and HSMs, with demos, presentations, and experience sharing.

When: November 9, 2022

Where: Water Grill - South Coast Plaza

Language: English

A connected, secure society relies on PKI and signing technologies. For keys to be properly protected, Hardware Security Modules (HSM) are recommended and often required in conjunction with PKI.

We will present best practices and demonstrate how to efficiently deploy Keyfactor’s EJBCA and SignServer together with Fortanix Data Security Manager (DSM) in a dynamic and fully automated cloud infrastructure environment. Our approach involves the use of modern deployment tools such as Helm charts, Ansible playbooks, and container signing. We will also show how digital identities are injected into the CI/CD pipeline as early as possible.

After the meetup, you will be able to try out EJBCA and SignServer open-source tools, and the integration with Fortanix DSM, and understand how they can help solve security problems for your application.
