Highest security and speed for securing cryptographic procedures
The benefits of secunet hardware security modules (HSM)
With HSM, not only several thousand transactions per second are possible, there is also a high number of keys on only one HSM. All common crypto algorithms are supported.
HSMs can be used flexibly due to their individual adaptation. Cryptographic procedures are used in numerous applications: meeting the requirements of the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), generating signatures for certificates (Certification Authority), communication via web portals of authorities and banks, generating electronic tickets or for signatures in time stamp services.
Hardware and software are separately secured by special housings and connections. Access protection at HSM is provided by a multi-eye principle, and HSM components are also certified according to security standards.
HSMs offer powerful and flexible key management with secure backup of keys and configuration data. Failure safety and load distribution (high availability, load sharing and load balancing) as well as scalable performance are provided.
How we can support you in the selection and integration of the right HSM components
Finding suitable HSM components is not easy. That is why we support you in the selection process, taking into account the required technology, the fulfilment of certification requirements, the required performance and the integration into your infrastructure and applications. In addition to pointing out integration possibilities and training the responsible system developers, we also take care of the complete integration of HSM modules ourselves. It is important to us that the product can be optimally integrated, administered on a role-based basis and operated in a fail-safe manner. Our comprehensive know-how in the use of HSM helps you to find the right solution and to use it efficiently. We have already successfully integrated HSM components at large companies, public administrations, banks and in the automotive industry.
