How to streamline code-signing and manage SSL certificates

How Apache Software Foundation Streamlined Code-Signing and Managed SSL Certificates


The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and its Apache Web server (which is estimated to power more than 50% of all websites including Amazon and Paypal), develops and distributes 350 open-source software products that have proven critical to the web. That said, they knew they needed a simpler way to cryptographically sign them, validating authorship and security.

ASF also needed to simplify SSL certificate management and realized they needed to leverage cloud-based code-signing to help pull it off.

So how’d they do?

In this case study, discover how ASF streamlined code-signing  and more effectively managed SSL certificates for its servers  and reaped huge rewards including:

  • Secure cloud-based access for 4,000 developers
  • Access is isolated and role-based to minimize risk
  • Certificate-driven access avoids username/ password management
  • On-demand SSL certificates issued in minutes instead of days
  • And more
