CertAccord Enterprise 4.11 Adds Key User Requested Features CertAccord Enterprise 4.11 has been released by Revocent and provides key new features requested by enterprise customers including native RPM and DEB packages for Linux, maintenance periods, and Agent CLI improvements. Many customers have been requesting the CertAccord Enterprise Agent be install-able as a native Linux RPM and DEB package in addition to our standard run-able installer. With this release customers can now choose to install the Agent using native Linux rpm and dpkg commands to more easily and seamlessly integration with their existing IT management systems. Customers have been requesting that they be able to control when certain actions are performed by CertAccord in order to integrate and comply with their internal change control processes and allow them to be compliant with their Service Level Agreements (SLA). This release allows customers to control when certificate actions are performed from the Settings page of the CertAccord Enterprise Management Console. The Agent Command Line Interface (CLI) has been improved to allow customers to customize the certificate creation process. The CLI now supports the ability to specify certificate alias for JKS and PKCS#12 file formats. Support is also added for creation of result files to allow other applications to more easily automate certificate creation using CertAccord Enterprise. CertAccord Enterprise allows Linux, MacOS X, Solaris, and Windows (including non-AD joined) systems to quickly and easily create and install digital certificates that are fully managed. Integration with Active Directory is builtin into CertAccord and does not require changing authentication systems at the OS (Linux) level. You can install CertAccord in hours, not months without major changes to your existing PKI or AD environments. The enrollment and fully automatic renewal of certificates from Microsoft ADCS on platforms such as Linux and MacOS X significantly reduces costs and reduces risk of service outages from manual certificate creation. Even more so the automatic renewal of certificates significantly lowers cost and reduces the risk of service outages.

CertAccord Enterprise allows MacOS X along with all other major platforms including Linux and Windows to quickly and easily create and install digital certificates that are fully managed. The Windows platform features builtin auto enrollment capabilities with Microsoft ADCS. CertAccord Enterprise mirrors this on MacOS X, Linux, and UNIX. The enrollment and fully automatic renewal of certificates on MacOS X from Microsoft ADCS significantly reduces costs from manual certificate creation. Even more so the automatic renewal of certificates significantly lowers cost and reduces the risk of service outages.

CertAccord Enterprise 4.9 has been released by Revocent and features major enhancements to Active Directory (AD) Groups and LDAP settings. Handling large numbers of Groups has been significantly improved. The Console can now handle tens of thousands of Groups imported from Active Directory or natively created. AD Groups can also be used to automatically approve registration requests by assigning a specific Role to a Group. Importing data from AD can now be configured to use specific LDAP Search Base values for each CertAccord activity. The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) has been changed from Oracle JRE to OpenJDK. This change was necessary due to a significant change in Oracle’s JRE license. Customers can still choose to supply and use their own Oracle JRE in place of the OpenJDK bundled with CertAccord.

CertAccord Enterprise 4.8 has been released by Revocent and features a major update to its Management Console GUI and the introduction of Certificate Appliers. Additionally many new enterprise friendly features have been implemented including Active Directory filtering of User Groups by OU, logging to Windows Event Log on Windows systems, certificate SAN validation settings, and automatic approval of device registrations by role. The updated Management Console has a leaner and much cleaner layout than previous versions. Much of the clutter has been removed to optimize the space to display data while still allowing the user to access filters and sorting capabilities. The dashboard has been updated to provide more relevant data in color coded groups. The Management Console now supports the ability to view and edit Roles. Previously this was only available from the command line. Certificate Appliers are a new feature in this release which provides customers with the ability to perform actions when a certificate is created or renewed. Certificate Appliers is a command line API. A customer can write a script which is run each time a certificate is created or renewed. This provides the ability to perform actions such as update an application with a new certificate. The CertAccord Enterprise Administration Guide has complete details on how to write a Certificate Applier. The new Auto Approval Device Registrations by Role setting allows user credentials with the proper role to automatically receive registration approval even when manual approvals are enabled. This adds yet another option for enterprises to meet audit and controls requirements while still automating the installation of CertAccord Enterprise.

CertAccord Enterprise version 4.6 has been released by Revocent, Inc. This release adds CertAccord Enterprise Agent support for Oracle Solaris X64 and SPARC. This allows Solaris systems, along with existing supported platforms Linux and Windows, to integrate with Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS) and offer a single solution for fully automated certificate lifecycle management. Systems running the CertAccord Enterprise Agent do not require any direct Active Directory integration which makes for a very fast and simple installation without changing the authentication platform of client (end point) systems. This release also includes many small but important improvements and bug fixes. Highlights include a more secure initial server installation which uses TLS from initial configuration and a more robust and stable Agent. Contact Revocent today to learn more and discuss how CertAccord Enterprise can improve your security profile and reduce costs substantially.
CertAccord Enterprise version 4.4 has been released by Revocent, Inc. This latest stream release adds support for CertAccord Enterprise Agent on Microsoft Windows platforms. This support allows for a single integrated solution for Windows Auto Enrollment and automatic certificate renewals on Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2016. CertAccord Enterprise on Windows allows systems that are not joined to Active Directory to integrate with Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services (ADCS). Non-domain joined Windows systems can be automatically provisioned with Certificates and have automatic certificate renewals using CertAccord Enterprise. CertAccord Enterprise previously supported Linux based systems and provided a certificate management bridge between Linux and Microsoft ADCS. Now these features are available to Windows based systems that are AD domain joined or not domain joined. This release also includes numerous other features and fixes benefiting all supported platforms. Please refer to the Release Notes for further details.
Revocent has just released version 3.0 of CertAccord Enterprise providing X.509 digital certificate creation and management on Linux from Microsoft ADCS and GlobalSign PKI services. This major release provides improved integration with Active Directory (AD) including user authentication and user access control to enterprise digital certificates. The CertAccord agent can be installed on Linux systems to allow users to create X.509 digital certificates from Microsoft ADCS and GlobalSign Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). When CertAccord is run by a user on Linux they can be prompted for their AD username and password which is authenticated securely with AD. The Linux system does not need to be joined to the AD domain and does not require any other third-party AD integration solution. CertAccord can be configured to automatically bind AD Groups to CertAccord Roles. This allows CertAccord administrators to limit who can request certificates without having to manually issue and approve individual requests. Administrators can configure all AD users to be able to create certificates or only users in specific AD Groups. CertAccord already includes the automatic life-cycle management of certificates. CertAccord will automatically renew certificates prior to expiration. This provides Linux systems similar capabilities to Microsoft Windows “auto enrollment”. Designed from the ground-up to be a quick and easy “bolt-on” installation, CertAccord can typically be installed in a customer’s environment in one to two days. No major changes to a customer’s existing AD or PKI are required.
