Key Manager Plus 5.7 is now available!


Hi all,

We are happy to announce the release of Key Manager Plus 5.7 (Build 5700). We'd like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers and users for their feedback and continued support.

 

New features and enhancements include

 

  • Integration with public certificate authorities: Key Manager Plus facilitates end-to-end life cycle management of certificates obtained from trusted certificate authorities (CAs) enabling users to request, consolidate, deploy, renew and track certificates issued by multiple commercial CAs from a single interface. This functionality powered through a seamless API integration with The SSL Store™—one of the largest platinum partners of world's leading CAs—provides users the option to acquire and manage certificates from the following third-party CAs directly from Key Manager Plus' web interface: Sectigo (formerly Comodo), Symantec, Thawte, Geotrust, and RapidSSL. 

 

  • Audit notifications: Users can now choose to receive audit log notifications for various operations performed in Key Manager Plus. The alerts can be configured in the form of email notifications, or SNMP traps / Syslog messages to management systems within your network.

 

  • Key Manager Plus now provides users the option to update credentials for SSH resources in bulk, which is useful in cases where multiple resources operate with the same credentials.

 

Bug Fixes

 

  • Previously, the DNS based domain control validation procedure was unsuccessful for Let's Encrypt sub domain certificate requests. This has now been fixed.

 

  • Previously, those certificates that contained string parameter "WITH" (in this format, eg., SHA256WITHRSA) in the signature algorithm could not be classified as root certificates. This issue has now been fixed.

 

  • Previously, when pushing key files to users after key association, dissociation or editing authorized_keys file via SCP, there were issues with accessing the file post transfer due to file name issue. This has now been resolved by generating a random file name before transferring to the appropriate user accounts. 

 

  • In Key Manager Plus build 5650, the global search for certificates based on common name and SAN failed to retrieve proper results. This has now been fixed.

 

  • Previously, the file-based discovery of SSL certificates failed for large file sizes (more than 50 thousand IP addresses). This has now been resolved.

 

  • Previously, there were issues with resetting the password for Key Manager Plus account (local authentication) using the "Forgot Password" option. This issue has now been fixed.
