Hello Rob,

One may argue that a self signed certificate should be fine for internal use.

Usually, larger organizations run a Microsoft Active Directory based PKI. It's comparably easy to have a certificate request signed via its web interface.

As Larry rightfully points out, it's still manual labor. I simply can't understand why vendors of "every piece of gear", like appliances, switches, printers, etc. do not implement at least SCEP or EST. Apparently those vendors either don't take security seriously ("You can always use our self-signed certificate. Just ignore/override the browser's warning.") or have no idea about the annoyingness of repeated manual labor. Aren't computers perfect for automating repetitive tasks?

:wq! PoC
