Enhanced security: nCipher high assurance for Microsoft active directory certificate services

Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services (AD CS) issues, manages, and validates the digital identities used to bind persons, devices, or services to their corresponding private keys. The validity of each issued certificate depends upon the protection of the CA key issuing the identities.

Breach identification, recovery, and contingency planning are important steps that can be taken to strengthen the security of a PKI. A hardened, high assurance PKI provides an environment that protects security-critical keys from theft and misuse.
