Key Management Device
KMD is a compact, tamper-resistant security module (TRSM) that allows users to securely form keys from separate components. KMD generates keys complying with relevant security standards, including X9, TR-39, ANSI X9.24-1, and PCI PIN Security. This critical key management operation can be performed without physically connecting to a production HSM, providing greater operational flexibility without compromising security. A single KMD can generate keys for multiple payment HSMs using different local master keys (LMKs).
- Minimises Operating Costs: Enables personnel to import, export and manage HSM keys without physically accessing or interacting with transaction HSMs, saving time, reducing travel and minimising operating costs.
- Simplifies Security Audits: By offering a secure approach and using a tamper-resistant security module (TRSM), this solution enables efficient compliance with banking industry security requirements from ANSI, X9, and PCI.
- Maximises Flexibility: Use a single device to generate keys for numerous HSMs with multiple LMKs, maximising flexibility and operational efficiency.
