Utimaco is a leading manufacturer of hardware based security solutions that provide the root of trust to keep cryptographic keys safe, secure critical digital infrastructures and protect high value data assets.
On Feb. 23, Utimaco announced SecurityServer 4.0, its flagship hardware security module. With SecurityServer 4.0, Utimaco is addressing the security requirements of the Industrial Internet of Things. New features include:
Configurable role-based access control which supports the implementation of numerous stringent security policies, like n-person-rules or m-of-n quorum authentication for up to 15 users on a per-function basis, and the definition of custom roles.
Interface hardening that enables customers to deactivate applications and functions that are not used or shall not be accessible, ensuring that the HSM is limited to required functionalities only.
Administration-only mode which lets customers configure the HSM to execute administration functions only. Administration-only mode requires explicit activation of cryptographic functions after booting the HSM, and prevents interruption or delay of administrative actions by cryptographic operations during a maintenance window.
