The PKI, aka Public Key Infrastructure, is an intern certificate management system. There are several kinds of PKI among which you can choose yours according to your needs (in server certificates or client certificates) and the final use of these certificates. A Pki allows you to:
REMINDER ABOUT PKI DELIVERED CLIENT CERTIFICATES: A PKI is a lot easier to manage. You can issue a great number of certificates in no time. But even if the TBS Client X509 certificates are -on a technical level- the same than the one delivered in our TBS X509 offer, they have no legal value and if they are bound to be used in a legal procedure you will have to pass on the PKI solution.
They are compatible with 99.3% of web browsers including IE 5.01 and higher. They can be used with Outlook 2000 and higher and with Outlook Express and higher.
The TBS PKI SME, less expansive than the TBS PKI Entreprise, is an ideal solution for small organizations. Its mechanism is siple : from a PKI account hosted on a web interface (in english) you will order certificates that will be issued in less than an hour. The certificates issued by this PKI are technically the same than those sold in the TBS range of products. They are compatible with 99,3% of the browsers including IE 5.01+. They work with Outlook 2000+ and Outlook Express 5+.
You can open a PKI account by purchasing a certain amount of point (pre-paid account). This amount can be allocated to your certificate purchases, without any limit in time but can't be refounded. The higher the amount, the better the discount !Your company will be audited right after having opened an account (same process than for an automn server certificate) and you will have to choose a man in charge of the security.

Firefox, Outlook 2000+, Outlook Express 5+, etc.). Become your own Certification Authority now!
Certificates delivered through the the PKI Entreprise offer are technically the same than those sold in our TBS range of products except that the intermediary authority is "Your Organization".
