AWS Private CA introduces Connector for SCEP for mobile devices (Preview)

Posted on: Jun 11, 2024

AWS Private Certificate Authority (AWS Private CA) launches the Connector for SCEP, which lets you use a managed and secure cloud certificate authority (CA) to enroll mobile devices securely and at scale. Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) is a protocol widely adopted by mobile device management (MDM) solutions for getting digital identity certificates from a CA and enrolling corporate-issued and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mobile devices. With the Connector for SCEP, you use a managed private CA with a managed SCEP solution to reduce operational costs, simplify processes, and optimize your public key infrastructure (PKI). Additionally, the Connector for SCEP lets you use AWS Private CA with industry-leading SCEP-compatible MDM solutions including Microsoft Intune and Jamf Pro.

The Connector for SCEP is one of three connector types offered for AWS Private CA. Connectors allow you to replace your existing CAs with AWS Private CA in environments that have an established native certificate distribution solution. This means that instead of using multiple CA solutions, you can utilize a single private CA solution for your enterprise. You benefit from comprehensive support, extending to Kubernetes, Active Directory, and, now, mobile devices.

During the preview period, Connector for SCEP is available in the following AWS Regions: US East (N. Virginia).

This feature is offered at no additional charge, you only pay for the AWS Private CAs and the certificates issued from them. To get started, see the Getting started guide or go to the Connector for SCEP console
