World’s First Commercial Certification Authority Supporting the Issuance of Platform Certificates

Date Published: April, 23, 2024

A company of NEC, Cyber Defense Institute (CDI), a Japanese Cyber Security Company, launches the cloud-based private certification authority solution PIV Gateway™ CA that supports not only traditional X.509 certificate issuance but also emphasizes the issuance of Platform Certificates.

According to our research, this is the world’s first commercial certification authority service to support Platform Certificates.

Our system leverages FIPS 140-3 certified Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to fulfill stringent security requirements, underscoring our dedication to adhering to the highest security standards. It presents an optimal solution for computer manufacturers, value-added resellers, and system integrators who supply products with high security demands—such as servers, laptops, and desktop computers—complying with the National Security Agency’s (NSA) Guidance on Acceptance Testing for Supply Chain Risk Management.

Thanks to its OpenAPI compatibility, our system facilitates seamless integration into existing manufacturing workflows, significantly enhancing the efficiency of automated certificate issuance. This capability is essential in sectors requiring improved supply chain security, ensuring the secure and efficient distribution of Platform Certificates.
