CERTIFICATE AUTHORITIES

MyID® provides the credential management system for governments and enterprises to issue and manage certificate authority di​gital certificates for PKI-based secure digital identities.

Certificate authorities (CAs) provide a software solution or service for issuing digital certificates containing public keys associated with specific people or devices (private keys).

This allows operations performed by the private key, such as signing or authentication, to be verified using the public certificate, enabling relying parties to be confident the operation was carried out by a known and trusted individual.

Certificate authorities work as part of a public key infrastructure (PKI) solution, which provides features to allow keys and certificates to be archived and recovered (escrow) and validated online.

MyID acts as a combined registration authority and device issuance system, providing a single interface to enable the issuance and lifecycle management of certificates to secure devices such as smart cards and phones.

MyID supports a wide range of market leading CAs, including support for multiple CAs concurrently and enabling a managed migration from one CA vendor to another.

CA support is typically provided via a dedicated CA connector, but for those CA vendors who prefer to integrate directly with MyID they write their own connector using the MyID PKI integration API.
