Secure Service Provisioning

Just as with devices, services require private keys and certificates. Seacert provides server provisioning to some of the largest connected device infrastructures in production today. These commercial PKI’s have entrusted Seacert to manage their certificate authorities. In this role, Seacert certifies the private keys that the services generate. These services use the certificates Seacert provides to authenticate themselves as legitimate service providers.

Seacert meets the needs of its connected device infrastructure customers by designing solutions that are optimized to the customer’s specifications and requirements. Seacert’s team of security architects and operations experts can help determine the optimal PKI structure, specify certificates, and provisioning workflow for your service.

Internet of Things (IoT) Security

IoT Security

This requires authentication and encryption among and between trusted devices and services. Seacert provides a secure device provisioning service. The service has been used for years by leading consumer electronics manufacturers.

Secure Publishing

Secure Publishing

DRM systems require approved trust management services to generate and distribute certificates and cryptographic keys used by license services and playback devices. Seacert is a trust service provider approved by the Marlin Trust Management Organization (MTMO) to operate as a Marlin Trust Service Provider (TSP). .

Server Administration

Server Administration

SSH keys are used in just about every server administration platform, from Amazon EC2 to private VM server farms. Managing the ever-growing SSH keychain can be a difficult task. Seacert can provide key generation and escrow services for SSH keys, including custom certificate structures to manage the use of your SSH keys within your organization.

Secure Web (SSL)

Secure Web (SSL)

Not all SSL certificates are created equal. Seacert provides SSL certification services with support for unusual certificate extensions and features. Get in touch directly with us as we specialize in custom certificate configurations.

Secure Messaging

Secure Messaging

Messaging is a key application in today’s enterprise, and secure messaging infrastructure can be costly and complex. Seacert will soon be able to provide certificate management services for enterprises looking to use open standard secure messaging platforms such as S/MIME where client application support is common, but the certificate management is missing or unwieldy.

Top Businesses Choose Seacert


The Tivù service in Italy is a nationwide digital satellite and over-the-top VOD television service. Tivù approached Seacert with a request to provision Marlin DRM-enabled set-top boxes for the TivùOn OTT service, thus ensuring that they comply with the Marlin Trust Management Organization (MTMO) requirements. Additionally, Tivù requested that Seacert provide a custom PKI for Tivù. Seacert collaborated with Tivù to design a custom certificate hierarchy according to its requirements, and developed a secure workflow for the provisioning of certificates from its proprietary CA which Seacert generated and now manage.


The UK’s YouView offers full television services to a large membership base across the nation. The YouView service includes all the popular TV channels from the UK, including Channel5, the BBC, Sky, and more. When YouView needed to build out its DRM infrastructure, it came to Seacert to implement its trust infrastructure. YouView required custom certificates issued from YouView own certificate authorities. Seacert provided consultation and design services for this new structure. Additionally, all manufacturers providing YouView boxes and players use Seacert to provision their devices to be YouView and Marlin enabled.
