Selecting the Right Hardware Security Module
Cryptography, by its very nature, is pretty complex, it is often difficult to choose the right system with appropriate consideration of level of security, costs, compliance or ease of manageability. In the center of every banking-grade cryptographic system is the right hardware to provide adequate security for your critical infrastructure, without overshooting your needs.
How much cryptographic security is too much? What is the industry standard? What exactly is a Hardware Security Module, and what benefits does it offer?
Making the wrong choice could be a costly mistake. This white paper provides a guideline for the choice of the right HSM, shedding light on aspects like:
- Technical differentiating factors
- Procedural factors
- Business compliance requirements
- Deployment: on-site or as-a-service
