PKI Management

This page shows you how to manage keys and certificates for your organization in the KompiTech Blockchain Platform.

PKI Modes

There are 2 possible ways to manage certificates, which are referenced below:

  • IDaaS - user wants to use Identity as a Service to manage encryption keys.

  • Manage keys yourself - user has to securely store and manage keys on its own.

IDaaS

KompiTech Blockchain Platform provides you with Identity as a Service (IDaaS) that can be used to securely store and manage the keys and certificates.

Note

By default, during organization creation, your IDaaS will automatically generate and securely store CA and admin encryption keys. You can use them or create your own CA or user certificates.
