Hardware Security Modules (HSM)
In today’s security data protection challenges, the hardware security module (HSM) is delivering secure cryptographic processing, key protection, safeguards mission-critical PKIs, SSL/TLS, and enterprise digital transactions.
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.
Why Use Hardware Security Modules?
Enterprises buy hardware security modules to protect transactions, identities, and applications because HSMs excel at securing cryptographic keys and provisioning encryption, decryption, authentication, and digital signing services for a wide range of applications.
With Hardware Security Modules, You Can:
- Offload and accelerate cryptographic operations to a dedicated cryptographic processor that eliminates bottlenecks and maximizes application performance
- Centralize lifecycle management of cryptographic keys– from generation, distribution, rotation, storage, termination, and archival – in a purpose-built, highly secure appliance
- Improve profitability and achieve compliance with solutions for paper-to-digital initiatives, PCI DSS, digital signatures, DNSSEC, hardware key storage, transactional acceleration, certificate signing, code or document signing, bulk key generation, data encryption, and more.

SafeNet Payment Hardware Security Modules support the security needs of retail payment processing environments, internet payment applications, and web-based PIN delivery.
Transaction Security with SafeNet Hardware Security Modules:
Is a network-attached hardware security module (HSM) designed for retail payment system processing environments for credit, debit, e-purse and chip cards, as well as internet payment applications.
Available in network attached and PCIe form factors, SafeNet ProtectServer Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are designed to protect cryptographic keys against compromise while providing encryption, signing and authentication services to secure Java and sensitive web applications.
SafeNet Protect Server HSMs offer a unique level of flexibility for application developers to create their own firmware and execute it within the secure confines of the HSM. Known as functionality modules, the toolkits provide a comprehensive facility to develop and deploy custom firmware.
Managing hardware security modules virtually is now not only possible, but easy for administrators. With SafeNet Crypto Command Center, organizations easily provision crypto resources for their SafeNet HSMs and reduce IT infrastructure costs.
Combining SafeNet Crypto Command Center with our SafeNet HSMs, IT departments can leverage a crypto hypervisor to deliver on-demand, elastic cryptographic services for data protection via cloud environments.
By partnering with leaders in HSM Solution, RNTrust (Formerly Recronet), a global system integrator can help you successfully design, develop and deploy HSM & Services that meet the most complex security requirements.
