HID Global’s ActivID® Validation Authority enables organizations to deploy a PKI certificate validation infrastructure capable of scaling to millions of user certificates. The solution supports the OCSP and SCVP standards, enabling real-time validation from every end point in an organization’s network, without needing to manage multiple large Certificate Revocation Lists (CRLs).
The ActivID Validation Authority is ideal for:
The ActivID Validation Authority can be combined with the ActivID Validation Responder to establish local OCSP and SCVP validation services across a distributed environment. The combined solution is ideal for large organizations needing to implement real-time validation services across multiple regional networks, and for organizations including government agencies and partner networks participating in a federated Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) comprising multiple CAs, in which each party requires the ability to validate the status and authenticity of others’ credentials.
The unique distributed architecture of the solution eliminates the need for securing individual OCSP / SCVP responders with their own signing keys. This greatly reduces the cost and complexity typically associated with enterprise-wide PKI deployments. Data compression optimizes network resources and bandwidth and enables the solution to scale to address user populations of millions of certificates with response times that are virtually instantaneous.
