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

AWS Private Certificate Authority (AWS Private Certificate Authority) launches a connector for SCEP, which enables you to use a managed and secure cloud-based certificate authority (CA) for secure and scalable mobile device enrollment. Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) is a protocol commonly used in mobile device management (MDM) solutions for obtaining digital identity certificates from a certificate authority and for enrolling company-issued and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mobile devices. With 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, Connector for SCEP enables the use of an AWS private CA with industry-leading MDM solutions, including Microsoft Intune and Jamf Pro.

The connector for SCEP is one of three connector types offered for AWS Private CA. Connectors enable you to replace existing CAs with a private AWS CA in environments that have an established native certificate distribution solution. This means that instead of using multiple CA solutions, you can use one private CA solution for your enterprise. You benefit from comprehensive support, including Kubernetes, Active Directory and now also 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 cost, you only pay for private AWS CAs and the certificates they issue. To get started, see the Getting Started guide.
