Key Pair Generation & Signing

As the Internet of Things continues to expand, companies are recognizing the value and necessity of authentication.  Often relying on asymmetric cryptography to deliver this authenticity, the creation of large volumes of key pairs and the ability to associate these key pairs to a known constant can be a logistical challenge. Moreover, generating these key pairs and having them signed by a certificate authority for assignment to a known constant ultimate distribution and is all the more challenging.

KeyBRIDGE has the  ability to generate, store, and distribute hundreds of thousands of key pairs per day.  Additionally, by leveraging the KeyBRIDGE API for Remote Centralized Key Management (ARCK), users can use this simple JSON Schema Restful API to request generation and facilitate secure signing while relying on KeyBRIDGE for the secure delivery of signed key pairs to target devices.
