Deploy and manage agents

The automation agent software is DigiCert’s native client for managing TLS/SSL certificates on standard hosts such as web servers.

DigiCert​​®​​ agents include the industry-standard ACME protocol plus high-level management functions. Agents can automate certificates for well-known web server applications out of the box and can also be configured to support custom applications.

You install the agent software locally on each host. The agent sends certificate requests to DigiCert​​®​​ Trust Lifecycle Manager, and then downloads and installs the resulting certificates onto the local system.

The agent software is designed for secure and seamless operation, with no impact on network performance or integrity. It uses a pull communications model to sync with Trust Lifecycle Manager and can keep itself updated as new software versions are released so no ongoing maintenance is required.

Let op

You can install the DigiCert agent software on multiple servers at once in "silent mode". For required tools and an instruction guide, visit the agent download page for Windows or Linux from the Resources > Client tools area in DigiCert​​®​​ Trust Lifecycle Manager.
