Gain Control With SSH Key Management

Don’t manage SSH, control it and stop breaches before they start

Are you in control of your SSH, or is it in control of you?


Many organizations use SSH to secure their critical data and applications. This requires the creation of a new key pair for every new application, user, and automated service account. The challenge is that over time, thousands of SSH user and host key ‘pairs’ are created, but it’s unclear what they are used for or which system they pertain to.

Industry experts recommend retiring and updating key pairs at least every two years. However, this is extremely difficult to do because it’s nearly impossible to determine if they are still in use.

Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) protects you from the shortcomings of standard SSH software.

How We Help You Gain Control

Centralize User Management

Switch roles, accounts, passwords, and keys off immediately when a staff member leaves

Create Meaningful Roles

Attach SSH access policies to meaningful business and technical roles instead of individual users

Manage Keys Easily

Define where keys are used and made available automatically for SSH sessions without the ongoing burden of assigning staff to handle key distribution

Simplify SSH Authentication

Reduce the administration involved in SSH authentication by centralizing all SSH authentication methods

Enforce SSH Protocols

Establish which SSH protocol “doors” can be used, and where. For example, allow SSH Shell, but block SSH Tunnelling with the same SSH key

Centralize Session Logging

Eliminate one-off session logs with a single view of all logging activity

Forego External Scanning Tools

Detect historical SSH keys throughout your infrastructure without costly external scanning tools. If akey is not registered with Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS) and associated with the correct user and “door,” it cannot be used

Avoid Suspect Policies

Avoid using policies defined by mal-configured local SSH configuration text files or files that your staff or technical support partners have altered

The Benefits of SSH Key Management with Core Privileged Access Manager (BoKS)

BoKS ServerControl - Quickly Meet Compliance

Meet Compliance Requirements

Quickly meet the access/authorization regulations required by SOX, HIPAA, GLBA, PCI DSS, FDCC, and FISMA.

BoKS ServerControl - Reduce Admin Overhead

Reduce Admin Overhead

Centralizing policy and audit data greatly reduces the administration and overhead normally associated with SSH key use, including deployment across infrastructures and lifecycles.

BoKS ServerControl - Prevent Breaches

Prevent Breaches

Clearly define which SSH sub-protocols are associated with SSH keys/credentials instead of giving blanket access to an operating system.
