Sectigo IoT Manager (hereafter referred to as IoT Manager) provides trusted, mutual-authentication solutions for all types of IoT devices and networks. Using X.509 PKI certificates and custom hybrid TLS/SSL certificates, this issuance system allows you to enroll, download, and decrypt certificate batches.

You can administer IoT Manager at the EcoSystem level and Organization level, based on the following definitions:

  • An EcoSystem is a consortium of Organizations that establish and follow the same set of rules, guidance, and policies that are applied to the entire community when issuing and supporting certificates. As an EcoSystem administrator, your responsibility is to establish Organization administrators and configure Organizations.

  • An Organization is a member of an EcoSystem that consumes the services and participates in the EcoSystem; Organizations are members that are approved and supported by the EcoSystem. As an Organization administrator, your responsibility is to create other Organization administrators and request certificate batches and other supported services.
