Dashboarding, Monitoring, and Reporting

For each security professional, the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) represents the baseline of digital protection and trust. As the PKI grows and more certificates are issued, the management of certificate lifecycle becomes challenging. It is important to have a good visibility on each certificate and its attributes to not only have a control, but also to comply with various standards.

  • Number of expired and non-expired certificates
  • Number of certificates expiring in 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days
  • Distribution of public key sizes
  • Distribution of signature algorithms
  • Heat map of public key sizes in relation with signature algorithms
  • Table of certificates with nearest expiration date
  • Distribution of public key types

Reporting

Get the overview of the operations and be informed in time.

Reports are generated from the snapshots of the visualizations and dashboards on a regular basis.

Scheduled reporting provides insights into the EJBCA operations, different views for different perspectives (e.g. business vs operations).

Filtered data is saved in CSV, exported for system reporting purposes, or additionally processed.

Complete visibility of EJBCA data enables extensive options for monitoring.

Dashboard data can automatically refresh each few seconds, enabling the operational team to have up-to-date information at all times.

Notifications are triggered per defined rules, typical notification setup includes:

  • Certificates before its expiration
  • Failure of issuing CAs
  • Unavailability of CryptoToken
  • Access by privileged user
  • Change in the Profiles configuration
  • Number of requests reached threshold
