Hardware Security Modules
Your trust anchor for sensitive data …
Hardware security modules (HSMs) mean one major thing: Double protection, because they actively protect the keys that protect your data. Unlike purely software-based solutions, they provide hardware-based protection for critical systems such as public key infrastructures (PKIs), databases and web- or application servers. In this way, HSMs offer maximum security from external physical, chemical and mechanical attacks.
… in a digital world
But HSMs can do a great deal more. Processes for encryption and decryption, issuing of electronic certificates, generation of digital certificates or signatures and user and device authentication can all be “outsourced” to HSMs for execution in compliance with maximum security standards and statutory provisions. HSMs thus also safeguard security-critical processes and effectively prevent the readout and manipulation of sensitive key material.
USING HSMs CORRECTLY
How and Where to Use Hardware Security Modules
HSMs are deployed throughout industry for purposes of secure generation, storage and use of key material. Fields of application include e-health, energy (smart metering), bring-your-own-key (BYOK), automotive, access and admission management in enterprises, as well as infrastructures for the Internet of Things (IoT) – for all these, HSMs assume the function of a high-security “key deposit”.
