comment How are HSMs used in payment processing on the server?
Understood. But what is the actual usage of HSMs in a payment processing stack? Please ignore the example I gave in my question about decrypting card details. Can you tell me how exactly HSMs are used in the payment space?

comment How are HSMs used in payment processing on the server?
Agreed. But how are HSMs used in the payment processing application specifically? What is decrypted/encrypted using the HSM for this specific use case?

comment How are HSMs used in payment processing on the server?
Agreed. In this case (like Stephen mentioned as well), the key to decrypt the card details is in the HSM. So it should be on another machine in the network, which means the HSM should be accessible over a secure connection from the App server. Do HSMs have TLS end points? More over is this the typical architecture? Or are there other modules I am missing here?
