Machine Identity - Who’s Who in the Cloud?
Identities for machines operating in the cloud, like humans in the natural world, are an important quality that is essential to trust, authorization, and authentication. Machines are identified by cryptographic material that takes the form of a certificate. But in the cloud, it is challenging to find, track, and manage the many certificates that are dynamically assigned and used. New approaches to managing machine identities in a zero trust cloud environment are needed to realize secure business operations in the cloud.
