Encryption Key and Certificate Management

Institutional Information encryption is a process that, in conjunction with other protections such as authentication, authorization and access control, ensures adequate information security management. UC’s Encryption Key and Certificate Management Standard establishes requirements for selecting cryptographic keys, assigning key strength, managing keys and managing digital certificates.

This standard supports UC's information security policy, IS-3. It applies to all IT Resources, physical or virtual, that store, transmit, or process Institutional Information classified at Protection Level 3 or higher and use encryption keys or digital certificates. (For more information about protection levels, see the IT Resource Classification Standard.) For information about cybersecurity resources near you, visit Location Information Security Resources.
