Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Entitlement (Identity & Access Management) are considered core elements of Information Security Management which have been adopted by many organizations in public and private sectors.

In this paper we will derive on a strategic level how PKI and Entitlement can be deployed to meet IT needs of business and ensure compliance to regulatory and corporate policies.

In the second part we will describe how PKI and Entitlement solutions are successfully deployed at Siemens. The Siemens PKI and Entitlement infrastructure ranks among the largest private PKI and Entitlement implementations worldwide.
