SSH Key Manager


Seamless, Secure, Built for Cloud

With the SSH Key Manager, you can centrally manage thousands of SSH keys and users across your enterprise – all from a single console.


Make it easy for your users to generate and rotate their own SSH keys with just one click.

Manage keys via self-service UI or API

Automate alerts for key rotation

Enforce role-based user permissions


Enable IT and DevOps teams to automate SSH key deployment as services are spun up in CI/CD.

Automate key provisioning to any device

Monitor and audit SSH key lifecycle events

Manage keys across Linux/Unix machines


Proactively discover and protect SSH keys and control SSH-based access for machines and users.

Discover SSH keys on-prem or in the cloud

Remove unused or unauthorized keys

Assign SSH access privileges to users


See all SSH keys in one place

No more logging into each server to track down and audit SSH keys. Use simple agent-based or agentless discovery tools (orchestrators) to scan servers and hosts across your infrastructure and bring unmanaged keys into your inventory.

Once discovered, you can easily search your inventory and map key trust relationships to associated users, servers, and service accounts.


Delete weak or outdated keys and set rotation rules

SSH keys never expire. Thousands of ‘stale’ keys are left unmanaged on the network for years, yet they still enable privileged access to critical systems.

Switch from inventory-only to policy mode to proactively identify and remove any orphaned, outdated, and inactive keys. Enable your security team to define maximum key lifespans and schedule automated SSH key rotation alerts for users.



Orchestrate SSH keys and access

SSH keys are everywhere. IT and DevOps teams routinely push keys around the network, without any control over where or how they are used.

Keyfactor syncs with Active Directory (AD) or identity provider to easily assign and revoke SSH access for specific users and groups. If a user leaves the company, just revoke access and keys are automatically removed – no hassle.


Monitor and audit SSH compliance

Audits are never fun, but dashboards and reports make them a lot easier. With SSH Key Manager, security teams can cut audit response time down to just minutes.

Get real-time visibility into the type and status of all SSH keys from a single, customizable dashboard. Security teams can schedule reports on key rotation status and access privileges and get notified when rogue keys are created out-of-band.


Simplify SSH at scale

Reduce the headache and hassle of managing thousands of SSH keys. Allow users to generate and rotate their own keys within policy via self-service interface or API.

Our open-source bash orchestrators work seamlessly in the background to automate key provisioning to remote servers and workloads – even as they are spun up.


Deploy fast & scale up with Keyfactor

Your team needs a tool that can scale and adapt fast to agile DevOps and Cloud workloads.


Works with your existing SSH keys and connections. No need for new credentials or heavy scripting to discover and manage keys.


Automates SSH key deployment and host access for server admins, ideal for ephemeral workloads that are spun up and down rapidly.

Built for Cloud

Our modular architecture allows you to deploy discovery and automation tools into distributed network and cloud environments.

Easy to Integrate

Our extensible open-source bash orchestrator performs SSH key lifecycle management on Oracle Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu, and more.

No Pricing by Host

Simple, predictable, and scalable pricing. Forget costly pay per-host fees that tax you for securing SSH keys as you scale up operations.

Any Key, Any Certificate

Using the SSH Key Manager module with Keyfactor Command enables centralized control of all keys and certificates from one platform.


SSH is just the start.

Keyfactor Command provides complete discovery, control, and automation of any key, any certificate, anywhere. SSH Key Manager is available as an add-on module for Keyfactor Command to expand its out-of-the-box PKI and certificate lifecycle automation capabilities.
