Contrary to common perception, in-house PKI solutions are costly and complex to deliver. Initial setup costs are just the starting point in deploying and managing the lifecycle of encryption keys and certificates at scale. When evaluating whether to use a trusted 3rd party for your OT PKI needs, also consider embedded use cases such as factory provisioning or symmetric keying, as well as ongoing costs of personnel, specialized training, third-party audits and IMS maintenance.
