The rate at which machines and connected devices are being deployed across corporate, personal, and social networks is rapidly accelerating. The United Nations estimates the current world population at 7.6 billion, and Gartner projects over 20.8 billion devices connected to the internet by 2020.

With more machines and devices online than people, the Internet of Things (IoT) is driving exponential demand for trusted machine identities. Organizations need to understand how to support machine credentialing and how to securely manage demand. As a tried and tested foundational technology, public key infrastructures (PKIs) provide the framework to manage digital certificates for people, machines, and device credentialing. But to make it work at the scale the IoT demands, IT requires careful orchestration and a chain and root of trust you can depend on.

In this web conference, you will learn:

•  What is the evolving role of PKIs in the new IoT ecosystem
•  How the scale of the IoT places increased demand on PKIs
•  Why key orchestration and lifecycle management is critical
•  Where must root of trust be established to ensure security
