A very sensitive application has to protect several different forms of data, such as passwords, credit cards, and secret documents - and encryption keys, of course. As an alternative to developing a ...
We have to design and construct a system that signs files with sensible data, like evidences/proofs. The sign process is simple, basically calculate MD5 of the file content and encrypt the MD5 result ...
Are there any hardware HSMs that can host/run custom applications using the HSM processor(s) within the hardened security boundary?
It seems that the majority of commercially available hardware HSMs are only designed to allow authenticated users to generate, store, and use cryptographic keys with various cryptographic algorithms ...
What are the track records of popular Hardware Security Modules (HSMs)? Have any been found vulnerable to hacking via creative use of the API, timing or power-monitoring attacks, etc?
This question has been asked a few times, but always in the format "How does examplewebsite.com implement their 'please enter xth yth and zth characters of your password' function?" And the ...
Say a database server has a HSM which is in use for encrypting (reversibly of course) credit card numbers. Is there any way a HSM could be used to add strength to a password hashing scheme? (Or are ...
I am on a trade-off between the use of OpenSSL or NSS in an embedded Linux application that makes use of a TPM (HSM). EDIT: I need a SSH server and Apache using TLS, both using the keys protected by ...
