Sectigo, one of the world’s largest commercial Certificate Authorities (CAs) and a provider of purpose-built and automated PKI management solutions, now offers integrations with five popular DevOps configuration management and container orchestration platforms: Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, Terraform, and soon also HashiCorp Vault.
The additions of Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, Terraform, and soon HashiCorp Vault, would deliver a comprehensive PKI solution for DevOps. This combination of solutions would help IT teams ensure their DevOps environments follow accepted security practices, meet compliance and auditability requirements, and provide crypto agility.
“All sizeable enterprises either use or are implementing DevOps today,” said Lindsay Kent, VP of Product Management, Sectigo. “As they do so, these enterprises are also finding that they suddenly need to become PKI experts and must roll out their own PKI to ensure identity for containers and related services.”
IT teams would be able to benefit from this centralized management platform that can be used to enforce the security policies across the organization. The Sectigo Certificate Manager platform is used by hundreds of enterprises across the globe to issue, renew, and manage certificates for their mission-critical applications.
“These integrations between Sectigo Certificate Manager and the most popular DevOps orchestration tools give operations teams full visibility and control over the certificate properties they choose,” added Kent. “An expert partner, like Sectigo, can ensure enterprises follow accepted security practices and can keep implementations current with changes in cryptography needed to stay safe in a changing computing environment.”

To sum up, Sectigo’s latest integrations to its Certificate Management platform include:
- Docker – Allows DevOps teams to more easily create, deploy and run applications. By integrating with Docker, Sectigo can issue short lived public or private certificates to the applications running inside the Docker container.
- Kubernetes – Automates scaling, managing, updating, and removing containers, giving IT teams the flexibility needed to deliver applications consistently, no matter the size of the enterprise. Sectigo’s Kubernetes integration would enable “seamless” certificate issuance and management using the Kubernetes native certificate controller.
- Ansible – Ansible-based automation aids lifecycle management for large certificate volumes in heterogeneous environments. Sectigo’s Ansible module would eliminate complex security decision making and provide a transparent, platform-agonistic user experience for provisioning and managing TLS and client certificates.
- Terraform – This open-source tool creates, changes, and improves infrastructure. Sectigo’s Terraform integration enables the enrollment, collection, and revocation of certificates. Paired with HashiCorp Vault, Terraform provides secured storage for certificates and keys.
- HashiCorp Vault – HashiCorp Vault centrally manages and enforces access to secrets and systems based on trusted application sources and user identities. Sectigo Certificate Manager can assign certificates to applications protected by Vault and store keys and certificates used in DevOps environments.
As one of the largest commercial Certificate Authorities, Sectigo is trusted by enterprises globally for more than 20 years, while more than 100 million SSL certificates are being issued in over 200 countries.
