Discover unknown and rogue SSH keys.

No more logging into each server to track down and audit SSH keys. Automatically scan servers and hosts across your infrastructure and bring keys into a single 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Delete Weak Or Outdated Keys And Set Rotation Rules

Remediate risks and enforce key rotation.

Too often orphaned and outdated SSH keys are left unmanaged on the network, leaving privileged access to critical systems open to misuse or compromise.

Proactively identify and remove any outdated and inactive keys with just a click. Your security team can also define maximum key lifespans and schedule automated SSH key rotation alerts to ensure compliance.


Automate key deployment and SSH access.

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

SSH Key Manager syncs with Active Directory (AD) or your 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.

Orchestrate SSH Keys And Access
Monitor And Audit SSH Compliance

Simplify compliance audits.

Audits are never fun, but dashboards and reports make them a lot easier. With Keyfactor SSH Key Manager, you can reduce audits down to just minutes.

Get real-time visibility into the type and status of all SSH keys in one dashboard. Schedule reports on key rotation status and access privileges, and get notified when rogue keys are created out-of-band.


Enable SSH key lifecycle automation at scale.

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

Our Bash Orchestrators work seamlessly in the background to automate key provisioning to remote servers and workloads – even as they are spun up.
