Solution Overview

CAs such as Let's Encrypt have made it much easier for application owners to request publicly-trusted certificates. Easier in terms of not having complex verification procedures before certificates can be issued, and also easier in terms of application software being able to request certificates without human involvement.

The ACME Adaptable CA enables the Venafi Trust Protection Platform to communicate with ACME CAs on the application's behalf, combining ACME's ease of obtaining certificates with Venafi's visibility, control, and powerful automation engine.
