AACHEN, Germany, November 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Got highly-sensitive information? Trust crypto technology-and get peace of mind against hacking.
US crypto expert Mike Skurko is holding a talk, about the significance of random number generators for IT security, at Utimaco's stand at CARTES in Paris. He will explain why trust is a matter of the technology leveraged and not a question of diplomacy or alliances.
Sovereign states and individual companies active in sensitive areas of business activity have to be absolutely certain that their most important goods-their data and processes-are protected from unauthorized access. But how can they be certain? They need a non-corruptible, tamperproof anchor of trust that is engineered to make encrypted data absolutely worthless without a key, and which ensures the key itself can never end up in the wrong hands under any circumstances.
Hardware security modules (HSMs) of the highest security level, with FIPS 140-2 Level 4 certification for physical security, are precisely this anchor of trust. Thanks to randomly generated numbers, the HSMs create strong crypto keys, manage and even delete them. The build of this tamperproof hardware makes it impossible to read or modify the keys. Even when it comes to attacks, such as drilling, heat or power blackouts, the keys are protected from being hacked. That's because the HSMs delete the keys-automatically, immediately and completely.
"With its new CryptoServer CSe, Utimaco has created an HSM that is specially tailored for applications at the highest level of security while meeting the high demands placed on processing speed," reports Andreas Philipp, Head of Sales CryptoServer. "Visitors to CARTES can experience the trustworthy security and high speed of the CSe series for themselves during a live demo at our stand-and be persuaded by the HSMs' ease of use and low total cost of ownership."
Utimaco has teamed up with its years-long partners-PrimeKey from Sweden, In-Webo from France and Achelos from Germany-to present innovative solutions and services for growth sectors such as Smart Metering, eID and eHealth based on Utimaco's HSMs.
Utimaco will be presenting its HSMs at stand K 082 in Hall 4. If you would like to drop by, you can request free tickets for CARTES at hsm.utimaco.com.
