One for the christmas stocking: A Hardware Security Module (HSM)December 12, 2014
On the first day of Christmas, my CIO bought for me – a Hardware Security Module…
A hardware security module (HSM) is a dedicated crypto processor that is specifically designed for the protection of the crypto key lifecycle. Hardware security modules act as trust anchors that protect the cryptographic infrastructure of some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world by securely managing, processing, and storing cryptographic keys inside a hardened, tamper-resistant device.
What Do Hardware Security Modules Do?
HSMs provide protection for transactions, identities, and applications by securing cryptographic keys and provisioning encryption, decryption, authentication, and digital signing services for a wide range of applications.
