Hardware Security Modules
OverviewThe module starts with a brief overview of the history of cryptography told from a Hardware Security Module (HSM) perspective. The presentation then goes through the detailed definition of HSMs and their application domains. The following aspects of an HSM are elaborated in detail: physical security, logical security, cryptographic functions, the special characteristics of a random generator and, finally, key management. There are dedicated standards and certifications for security products and two of them are described, namely the Common Criteria and FIPS 140-2.
