A hardware security module (HSM) is a dedicated crypto processor that is specifically designed for the protection of the crypto key lifecycle, Hardware security modules act as trust anchors that protect the cryptographic infrastructure of some of the most security-consious organizations in the world by securely managing, processing, and storing cryptographic keys inside a hardened, tamper-resistant device.

SafeNet Hardware Security Modules provide the highest level of security by always storing cryptographic keys in hardware. SafeNet HSMs provide a secure cyrpto foundation as the keys never leave intrusion-resistant, tamper-evident. FIPS-validated appliance.
