The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) validated the Utimaco CryptoServer Se Gen2 according to the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2, which describes the security requirements for cryptographic modules. FIPS is the de facto standard in numerous countries.
Companies and organizations need a FIPS140-2 encryption solution when they:
CryptoServer Se Gen2 is a tamper-proof hardware security module (HSM). It provides secure cryptographic services such as:
CryptoServer Se Gen2 is an encapsulated, protected security module. It is realized as a multi-chip embedded cryptographic module as defined in FIPS 140-2 Level 3, which requires tamper detection and response mechanisms as well as identity-based authentication. When operated in FIPS mode, the module offers a general purpose API with FIPS-approved algorithms as well as an administrative interface. A Secure Messaging concept protects communication to and from the module.
