Digital Certificates
NetIQ eDirectory/Certificate Server

We provide an enterprise PKI solution with our Certificate Server which offers the ability to freely mint an unlimited number of digital certificates for use in enabling secure email (S/MIME) applications. Certificate Server is natively integrated into NetIQ eDirectory, offering an enterprise Certificate Authority (CA) capability. Certificates and private keys are generated on the server and stored securely in NDS, then downloaded over an encrypted session to the user's workstation(s) to enable S/MIME digital certificates for GroupWise® for sending and receiving digitally signed and encrypted email.
