The Utimaco Atalla AT1000 is a payment HSM that enables interbanking business. It provides superior hardware security to deliver maximum privacy, integrity and performance for host applications. It supports cryptographic operations to perform PIN translation and verification, card verification, card production and personalization, electronic funds interchange (EFTPOS, ATM), cash-card reloading, EMV transaction processing, and key generation and injection.
Atalla HSMs are used by global payment leaders and card brands to secure their payment ecosystem and achieve the highest level of compliance. The use cases vary by different industries and the ecosystem players like issuers, service providers, acquirers, processors, and payment networks. We play a crucial role in securing interbanking communication, user and card authentication, as well as focus on user data protection for both in-person (card present) and remote payments (online or card not present) transactions. Some of the use cases include:
The Utimaco Atalla AT1000 HSM is PCI PTS Certified for the most demanding application profile, focusing on physical security when used in controlled and uncontrolled environments like non-ISO certified data centers. It provides unrivaled protection for AES and other cryptographic keys safeguarding payment transactions. The HSM protects and manages encryption keys needed for payment processing within the tamper-resistant/responsive hardware device.
The Utimaco Atalla HSM AT1000 host commands are fully backward compatible with its previous generation models, incorporating more than three decades of expertise — enabling co-existence and easy migration.
The Atalla Secure Configuration Assistant (SCA) is a versatile tablet-based tool that implements the remote and local management of the HSM intuitively. The SCA enables security administrators to easily configure commands, define parameters, calculate cryptograms, and inject cryptographic keys into Atalla HSMs in a trusted manner. An easy-to-use GUI with a natural event and decision flow is very convenient to navigate on wider tablet screens thereby improving security administrator user experience and productivity reducing risks of errors.
Full multi-domain key and policy enforcement enables enterprises to create and manage up to 10 HSMs in a single 1U Hardware appliance. The domains cater to business needs while applying separate policy enforcements and MFKs to govern individuality of each HSM.
The HSMs are highly regulated by PCI, NIST ISO and ANSI. AT1000 is certified as a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 HSM and PCI PTS HSM v3 to allow the best in class security and governance.
