Hardware-Based Protection of Sensitive Data Using HSMs

Conventional IT systems are vulnerable in many ways, as shown by the NSA scandal and numerous hacker attacks. Even major international corporations and governments are finding it hard to protect themselves adequately. A remedy may be the use of encryption technology or encryption generally. In this case, it is necessary to protect the encryption keys instead of the data themselves. A solution is to outsource cryptographic processes to especially secure peripheral devices, such as hardware security modules (HSMs). An HSM excecutes, inter alia, the secure generation and storage of keys as well as the encryption and decryption of any amount of data. The keys themselves do not leave the secure environment of the hardware security module.

This major boost in security for HSMs is achieved via, for instance, truly random number generation, screening of electromagnetic radiation, pseudo-calculations, physical access protection, various sensors and minimized software.
