SSH Tectia

User Certificate Enrollment

Users need to be actively involved in the key generation and enrollment of user certificates in order to tie their identities to the certificates. Thus user certificate enrollment is not centrally triggered via SSH Tectia Manager. Typically user certificates are stored on hardware tokens such as smart cards or USB tokens. The certificate enrollment is performed either in person at the HR department (functioning as a registration authority, RA), or online with credentials provided by the HR department.
