Digital identity products and solutions

Start issuing certificates yourself using Public Key Infrastructure

PKI is an infrastructure that provides companies and organizations a public-based encryption system based on SSL Certificates. It lets you use signature or authentication certificates issued by Actalis which, thanks to its infrastructure, offers a dedicated Certification Authority service.

Protect data exchanges via your website with SSL Certificates

Installing an SSL Server certificate on your website means you can enable the TLS protocol (Transport Layer Security), a standard solution for guaranteeing the security of online transactions. Using TLS enables 2 crucial security mechanisms: in the secure channel, all the data transferred between the website and the end user is encoded (the session is fully encrypted). With server authentication the user can check the website's authenticity and the identity of the organization managing it.

Code Signing Certificates, to certify the authenticity of executable code

Digital identity also offers protection and distinction in terms of what an organization produces. Operating systems increasingly tend to block the installation of unsigned applications. Thanks to the Code Signing certification process, the authenticity of the executable code produced by an IT organization, a private key used by the developer to sign the code and a public key, visible to the end user to verify the authenticity of the software, can be linked to a key pair.
