Purpose of a Certification Authority (CA) / PKI

Security - Trust - Encryption - Authentication - Digital Certificates

CA/PKI Servers are responsible for managing the complete life cycle of setting up Certification Authorities. It starts by setting up a Root CA followed by Subordinate CAs issuing, validating, and revoking end-entity (users, devices, IOT) X.509 digital certificates & CRLs. This allows all communication and transactions between users and devices to be secure, trusted, and authenticated.

By providing a secure and trusted infrastructure for managing digital certificates and keys, a CA/PKI Server enables organizations to establish a strong foundation of trust in their networked environments. This helps to protect sensitive information, prevent data breaches, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

Can we integrate with existing CAs?

Naturally, integrating Khatim PKI Server with your current CAs is possible, and any customization required for the integration will be free of charge.

What is needed to run a Certification Authority?

Deploying PKI server requires two core components:


  • CA software and an efficient hardware on which to deploy
  • Cryptographic Hardware; Such as an HSM, ensures that the keys for Root CA, Sub CA and end-entities remain secure and protected.


Note that running a PKI is not merely deploying software, there are other areas like planning, deployment & auditing. See our article on what is PKI all about.

How can developers integrate with the PKI server?

There are 2 options:


  • Keys are generated on the server; Developers can use any tool which generate JSON based Restful request to send requests for certificate management
  • Key are generated on the client: Developer can use any cryptographic API which provides client side implementation for key generation. Some of these are:
    • Bouncy castle
    • OpenSSL
    • Microsoft Crypto API
    • Libgcrypt
    • Botan
    • Crypto++
    • WolfSSL
    • GnuTLS
    • LibreSSL
    • Java Cryptography Architecture (JCA)
    • Apple Security Framework
    • PKI.js
    • NSS-Tools

How many PKI server instances I need to deploy?

Deploy multiple instances of Khatim PKI Server for high availability and increase as needed to achieve the desired TPS rates or regulatory needs. It’s important to consider deploying in both staging and DR zones.

How can we boost TPS with Khatim PKI Server?

There are many factor which can boost the performance. This includes:


  • Opting for ECDSA over RSA keys (Check with your HSM vendor too)
  • 2048 bit RSA keys over 4096 bit
  • 384 bit ECDSA key over 521 bit
  • Deploying multiple load balanced servers instead of a single instance
  • Deploying OCSP server near your client region with low network latency
  • Using HSM for keys storage instead of software
  • Using a PCI based HSM over network/cloud based HSM
