Corporate PKI - How it works

Nexus Smart ID Corporate PKI is a flexible and scalable certificate authority (CA) software, which enables you to issue and manage electronic identities (eIDs) for your enterprise need. Issue certificates for your employees (smart cards, mobile IDs, encryption, S/MIME etc) and to your devices (servers, routers, Wifi Aps, Phones or Firewalls).

The Corporate PKI module can be used stand-alone or as an add-on to Digital ID to replace Microsoft ADCS or any other CA or PKI platform.
