[Key Management — till 2019]

The life cycle of cryptographic credentials which can be used for servers to serve up services with TLS typically contains a lot of manual steps. This administrative burden is a significant cost factor and built-in delay that needs to be overcome if we want to harden the internet at scale. Especially rollovers are cumbersome and error-prone. Automation is needed to make strong encryption the default on the internet, and this project aims to create a set of integrated open source tools to manage cryptographic keys in a provably correct way. The project stems from the ARPA2 project, and builds on/integrates with the NCSC/NLnet funded TLS Pool from the SecureHub project.
