Here at Cybergate Defense, we use the latest technology in the Cyber Security industry to help secure IT infrastructure for businesses across the UAE.
Key Management– An HSM, or hardware security module, is a physical device that safeguards, manages and transacts digital keys. It functions through the encryption and decryption of digital signatures, strong authentication procedures and other cryptographic functions.
HSMs have features that provide tamper evidence such as visible signs of tampering or logging and alerting. They also provide tamper resistant measures that make tampering difficult without making the HSM inoperable. This approach means that tamper responsiveness, such as deleting keys upon tamper detection using the FIPS Standard, is also dealt with.
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. While also allowing organisations to improve profitability and achieve compliance with solutions for paper-to-digital initiatives.
These include Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS), digital signatures, Domain Name System Security extensions (DNSSEC), hardware key storage, transactional acceleration, certificate signing, code/document signing, bulk key generation, data encryption, and more.
For Public Key Infrastructures (PKI) or general purposes usage, an HSM is used to encrypt and decrypt each transaction between a client and server with the processing capacity based on the number of such transactions needed per second.
