Understanding the requirements and the need for hardware security modules
The European Union's Electronic Identification and Trust Services (eIDAS) Regulation was developed to help establish a single European market for secure electronic commerce. For organisations that handle online transactions with European citizens, the Regulation presents significant opportunities, but also creates new requirements. nCipher nShield hardware security modules play a vital role in helping to secure eIDAS-compliant solutions.
nCipher hardware security modules (HSMs) serve as root of trust
nCipher is a leading provider of HSMs. nCipher nShield HSMs serve as the root of trust for cryptographic data protection systems by providing a tamper-resistant environment for generating and managing encryption and signing keys and for running sensitive code.
