  • moving user authentication keys to protected locations, to prevent insider attacks;
  • removing keys that are no longer needed, to effect proper termination of access;
  • changing all keys so that copied keys cease to work, to eliminate existing backdoors;
  • continuous monitoring and enforcement of proper approvals.

Additionally, setting up new SSH keys or other trust relationships is typically automated to save costs and improve security.

Universal SSH Key Manager™ helps organizations of all sizes to manage their cryptographic keys in and automated access to large IT environments. The product is unique in being able to simultaneously manage, deploy, audit and rotate user authentication keys for large scale SSH environments.
