Digital Signing with Hardware Security Modules

Protecting digital signatures from compromise requires mechanism to secure the cryptographic keys at the heart of the digital signatures themselves. If the cryptographic keys associated with the digital signatures are in any way compromised, the entire Bankline Direct infrastructure will be compromised. For this reason, many organizations use hardware security modules (HSMs) to protect the private keys used for secure electronic signatures.

Digital Signing Use Cases

DNS Server Security

To ensure the validity of DNS services, DNSSEC employs public key cryptography to digitally sign DNS messages. Therefore, to realize the security required, robust protection of private signing keys is vital.

Smart Grid Security

Building a trusted smart grid requires robust security solutions that can be easily deployed at the communication and application layers of the smart grid infrastructure.

Code Signing Security

Today, many software marketplaces, including mobile app stores, require code to be compliant with specific digital signing requirements. In order to effectively secure private keys used in code signing, it is vital for organizations to leverage hardware security modules (HSMs).

Electronic Invoicing Security

Digital signatures, powered by encryption and public key infrastructure (PKI), represent the means for establishing trust in electronic invoices.

Document Signing with PKI Smart Cards and Tokens

As organizations move from paper toward digital business processes and initiatives, Thales PKI solutions are secure, portable, and simple-to-use solution that streamlines business processes and reduces the time and costs associated with traditional paper-based document signing. Thales users can digitally sign documents, files, forms, and transactions anywhere using SafeNet Certified based solutions as the Secure Signature Creation Device (SSCD) to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements, and seamlessly transition towards a paperless office environment.
