SSL/TLS Encryption: Today's Challenge

Growing use of web applications and cloud services is driving SSL/TLS encryption deployments and corresponding need to manage keys and certificates

SSL/TLS Encryption

Products and services from Thales eSecurity enable deployment of high assurance, high-performance SSL and TLS encryption to protect business and customers data, while delivering the efficiency that critical web applications require.

Protecting SSL/TLS Master Keys

The security of SSL/TLS deployments depends on the security of the associated master keys. Organizations that require a high level of assurance protect their SSL/TLS keys in a hardware security module (HSM).

Securing the Entire SSL/TLS Connection

For applications that require maximum protection, architects can choose to bring the entire SSL/TLS software stack and associated application logic within the secure boundary of the HSM, taking advantage of the nShield HSM’s CodeSafe SSL capability.

Thales nShield HSMs

For applications that require higher levels of security, nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) deliver FIPS-certified protection for your SSL/TLS master keys. Whether you are using an embedded nShield Solo or a stand-alone nShield Connect HSM, nShield SSL solutions help you meet your needs for high assurance security and compliance. Thales nShield HSMs safeguard and manage large numbers of critical SSL/TLS within a dedicated, hardened device, ensuring that keys are never exposed to unauthorized entities.

Thales eSecurity Benefits
  • Easily deployed and independently certified security for high assurance centralized SSL/TLS key management.
  • Embedded and stand-alone form factors and performance ratings suit various deployment scenarios including virtual environments.
  • Robust FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified platform enforces key management policies and facilitates compliance auditing.
  • Delivers high performance, availability, scalability, and trust for today’s application infrastructures.

Data Sheet : CodeSafe

"The Thales CodeSafe developer toolkit provides the unique capability to move sensitive applications within the protected perimeter of a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified nShield hardware security module (HSM). Business applications running on host servers are increasingly vulnerable to a variety of attacks and advanced persistent threats(APTs) that can compromise critical operations and lead to massive costs and disruption of services. While sensitive applications often employ cryptographic mechanisms to protect sensitive data, these applications can still be the target of attack by APTs and vulnerable to manipulation unless protected within a hardened environment."
