The SANS 20 Critical Security Controls for Effective Cyber Defense offers a blueprint of prioritized guidance to reduce risk. New updates to the SANS 20 signify the growing need to secure digital certificates and cryptographic keys to preserve trusted communications for all of your critical systems and your organization’s interactions with customers and partners. Too often cyberattacks on keys and certificates are successful because basic security controls are not present or not properly configured. Download the Solution Brief to learn how you can effectively build scalable controls and reduce risk: • Manage the rapid growth in certificates • Gain visibility into where keys and certificates are located • Secure your certificates against cyberattacks • Enforce automation of certificate issuance and renewal

Never before have state and local governments been expected to do so much with so little. Even as budgets remain tight in a post-recession environment, tech-savvy citizens demand higher levels of service, they want to pay taxes by credit card, renew their driver's license online, and check traffic from their smartphone. These responsibilities make cyber security critical for state agencies, municipalities, and public utilities. Governments possess residents' most sensitive information - including inviolable personal data such as Social Security numbers and birth certificates. This white paper highlights: Why traditional tools fail to detect advanced attacks; Gaining a cohesive, correlated view of all major threat vectors; How to leverage signature-less, real-time security that thwarts zero-Day attacks.

Properly managed, multi-server and wildcard certificates can provide increased flexibility. Since the consequences of a compromise can be more severe than they would be for a conventional certificate, supplemental safeguards should be employed. In the absence of these safeguards, we do not recommend the use of either multi-server or Wildcard certificates, due to both the security risks involved and the expanded scope of management issues in the wake of a compromise.

"For years, developers have known that one of the best ways to reassure users is by signing code using a digital signature accessed via a private key issued by a respected certificate authority. But signed code is not invulnerable. Due to lax key security and vetting processes, malware has managed to infiltrate applications with signed code. Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates help to halt malware infiltration by requiring a rigorous vetting process and helping ensure that private key security cannot be compromised. EV certificates require a hard token and associated PIN in order to sign code, introducing a more secure physical factor of authentication to the signing process. The EV Code Signing process provides browsers, operating systems, and security software an additional source of confidence in applications signed with an EV certificate. Read the white paper, Protect Your Applications—and Reputation—with Symantec EV Code Signing, to learn: • Key background on the latest malware threats • How you can provide users with reassurance that your application is safe to download • Why EV Code Signing Certificates represent the next step in advanced website security and their effectiveness • How you can help provide a frictionless experience when users attempt to download your application "

Public key infrastructure (PKI) is the foundation of today’s enterprise security. But most PKI lacks central visibility, consistent processes, and refresh progress validation. This leads to errors and missed system updates that result in policy violations and costly business interruptions. You can solve these issues with a PKI refresh that delivers automated key and certificate security and management.

Many security-minded organizations utilize code signing to provide an additional layer of security and authenticity for their software and files. Code signing is carried out using a type of digital certificate known as a code-signing certificate. The process of code signing validates the authenticity of legitimate software by confirming that an application is from the organization who signed it. While code-signing certificates can offer more security, they can also live an unintended secret life providing cover for attack groups, such as the Suckfly APT group. In late 2015, Symantec identified suspicious activity involving a hacking tool used in a malicious way against one of our customers. Normally, this is considered a low-level alert, however, the hacktool had an unusual characteristic not typically seen with this type of file; it was signed with a valid code-signing certificate. Download this whitepaper to find out more about how you can protect your business from such threats.

Digital certificates have become vital to MDM/EMM, WiFi and VPN access for mobile-device-to-enterprise authentication. But most struggle to identify who has access, audit that access, and terminate access if needed. IT teams need a central certificate security platform that delivers issuance and distribution, visibility, and policy enforcement, as well as the control needed to terminate access.
