What is a key management server?

A key management server is cryptographic hardware designed to handle every aspect and use case related to key management. That includes creating encryption keys, storing them, managing the policies that determine key rotation and deletion, encrypting the keys, and digitally signing them. Beyond dealing with individual keys, Futurex key management servers can easily establish a certificate authority (CA), a logical entity which creates and issues digital certificates. Certificates can be used to create trust throughout entire networks by providing a secure way to authenticate users, devices, and documents. The key management server also establishes policies to help manage CAs, creating public key infrastructure (PKI) on an enterprise level.
