SC-17: Public Key Infrastructure Certificates
- NIST Special Publication 800-53 Revision 5:
- SC-17: Public Key Infrastructure Certificates
The organization issues public key certificates under an [Assignment: organization-defined certificate policy] or obtains public key certificates from an approved service provider.
For all certificates, organizations manage information system trust stores to ensure only approved trust anchors are in the trust stores. This control addresses both certificates with visibility external to organizational information systems and certificates related to the internal operations of systems, for example, application-specific time services.
