Certificates are vital to protecting the flow of information to and from your devices. But manually installing unique certificates can be an error-prone, laborious, and time-consuming task—up to 15 minutes per device. HP Security Manager efficiently and automatically installs and integrates both ID and CA certificates across your fleet of HP devices in one fell swoop, speeding up the process and reducing administrative overhead. The solution also automatically detects and renews certificates before they expire to save additional time and effort.
Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) is an Internet Draft in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). This protocol is used by numerous manufacturers of network equipment and software who are developing simplified means of handling certificates for large-scale implementation.
When implemented as a client by HP within Security Manager, HP can integrate with a broad range of certificate authorities, registration authorities and trust platforms whether internal or external if that protocol is enabled. The SCEP connector for Security Manager is designed to be compatible with the draft specification including vendors like Venafi that support the SCEP protocol/service.
