Venafi Digital Certificate Automation Tool Sees Use at USPTO

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is using Venafi’s machine identity management solution to automate digital certificate processes.

Venafi says on its website that the Transport Layer Security Protect application enables automation through configurable workflows and built-in integrations with certificate authorities.

In a press release, the company explained that machine identities such as digital certificates protect the exchange of information between devices. According to Venafi, effective management of such identities can mitigate security incidents.

Before USPTO implemented the TLS Protect, its public key infrastructure team manually handled certification. The TLS Protect slashed processing time from 10 hours to 30 minutes by automating machine identity management in over 10,000 computers, Venafi said.

Jamie Holcombe, USPTO chief information officer, noted that implementing the TLS Protect enabled his organization to achieve one pillar of the National Cybersecurity Strategy.

That strategy requires the government to encourage investment in digital identity solutions.

Holcombe noted that USPTO also uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to create efficiencies in its operations.
