Protect Your Data and Your Network Devices
The DOCSIS® PKI
Since the standardization of version 1.1 of the protocol for our DOCSIS® public key infrastructure (PKI), the broadband industry has been relying upon public key cryptography (PKC) to ensure secure and strong authentications across networks.
DOCSIS PKI supports various products for a range of infrastructure needs:
Device Certificates for DOCSIS Devices allow for secure authentications of your devices and network nodes. These certificates are installed at the time of manufacturing.
Code Validation Certificates (CVCs)
CVCs allow for signing of software images. Both manufacturers and operators can acquire this type of certificate to securely manage the secure software download (SSD) process.
Service Provider Certificates (SPCs)
SPCs provide support for the infrastructure certificates as needed by operators. This type of certificate is available only to operators.
