Challenge

Achieving Consistent and Secure Digital Signing

As digital signing becomes increasingly crucial in cybersecurity, organizations face challenges with dispersed signing operations and multiple signing tools. This leads to inconsistent security measures and limited control.

To mitigate risks and costs, it's essential to ensure the secure storage of keys, avoiding their storage on developer laptops, even during prototyping and testing. Moreover, planning for a flexible solution during this stage can accommodate evolving needs, and scalability requirements, and maintain consistent, secure signing policies organization-wide.

Solution

SignServer implements centralized signing

SignServer is a solution that implements your signing operations in a central signing solution that supports multiple signing use cases, multi-tenancy, and secure storage of signing keys in a secure file (only recommended for testing and prototyping) or Hardware Security Module (HSM). Using an HSM is recommended for production environments.

You can get started with SignServer and sign code, document, and timestamps in no time. Use our tutorial videos, how-to guides, and documentation to get started.

  • Start SignServer Docker container as an ephemeral instance
  • Install SignServer from source from GitHub

By leveraging SignServer, already when you are testing and prototyping, you can centralize and simplify your signing operations from the start for all you developers and projects, enhancing security and control. Learn how to use SignServer today to get centralized signing.
