Elegantly Solving the Multiple Domain Problem

SSL certificates are an encryption technology used to secure communications between end users and Web sites. Certificate Authorities (CAs) also provide scan and inventory tools to help customers manage their SSL certificates. Management tools are one way CAs are differentiated in this competitive and growing market. This report provides annual shipment and revenue figures of SSL certificate issuance from 2010 – 2018. Market analysis is provided for vertical and regional markets, and SSL certificate types. Market share estimates and assessment of the prominent CAs are also included this report.

Executive Summary
-A certificate authority (CA) is a company that issues secure socket layer (SSL) certificates.
-In 2011, in part because of high visibility security breaches attributed to DigiNotar and Comodo, the CA/Browser Forum convened to establish baseline requirements for the issuance of SSL certificates.
-The CA/Browser Forum has active participation from the seven of the eight largest CAs, and the six leading browsers. The CA/Browser Forum is tightly knit and works with high transparency. This dynamic is unlikely to change at least over the next two to three years.
-SSL certificates are a mature technology. While there may be creative differences from different vendors within the CA/Browser Forum, the highly codified nature of SSL certificates standards make competitive differentiation difficult.
-While CAs could differentiate by offering elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) or secure hash algorithm SHA-3; over % of all certificates employ SHA-1 or SHA-2 cryptography.
-The transition from SHA-1 to SHA-2 is currently underway. As SSL certificates expire, slowly CAs are transitioning customers from SHA-1 to SHA-2 SSL certificates.
-Frost & Sullivan is using 2013 as the baseline for the study. In 2013, the SSL certificates market was $ million, with nearly million SSL certificates issued.
-In terms of revenue, the global SSL certificates market grew by % in 2013.
-Variations of the public key infrastructure (PKI) used in the SSL certificate exchange are used in encrypted email, e-identity (eID), and smart card log-in. Additionally, encryption is used for code-signing, document verification, and other digital certificates.
-The Internet of Things (IoT) may provide CAs with new revenue streams, although technically speaking, these opportunities are not confined to SSL.
-Retail remains the strongest market vertical in terms of SSL certificates revenues and unit shipments.
-The North America region is easily the strongest SSL certificates market. While Frost & Sullivan anticipates that North America will grow at % from 2013-2018, the rest of the world will grow at a faster revenue pace.
-For all intent and purposes the average selling price of an SSL certificate will be essentially unchanged through 2018.
