A potential solution to the pain associated with managing keys could be Hardware Security Modules (HSMs), according to Thales e-Security senior director of security strategy, John Grimm.

He told Infosecurity that the data owner should always keep control of the keys, according to best practice.
"HSMs help organisations enforce policy on the use of the keys, rather than relying solely on people and what are often manual processes," he added.

"The increased usage of encryption can be traced to many factors, chief among them being cyberattacks, privacy compliance regulations, and consumer concerns," said John Grimm, senior director security strategy at Thales e-Security.

"A very concerning finding is that many organizations are failing to follow well-understood best practices in their PKI deployments," John Grimm, senior director of security strategy for Thales, told eWEEK. "As an example, the usage of a weak mechanism like passwords--alone, without a second factor--to protect a PKI at 34 percent outpaces the use of HSMs to protect critical PKI private keys."

He noted additionally, over a third of deployed PKIs operate without any means of certificate revocation, leaving them vulnerable to downtime and other disruption if root or issuing CA keys are compromised and the population of extant certificates needs to be reissued.
"A silver lining is that some higher level security measures showed increases from 2015, such as multi-factor authentication for administrators, and HSM usage, each of which rose 4 percent from their 2015 levels," Grimm said.
He explained with the predicted rapid explosion of connected things and the importance of digital certificate technology in authenticating them and helping organizations determine whether they can trust the data they produce and share, PKI technology stands to play an ever-increasing and important role.
