Thales nShield hardware security modules protect cryptographic keys for the Axway VA Server, accelerate operations, and achieve compliance with FIPS and Common Criteria.
Axway VA Server uses encryption and digital signatures to prove the authenticity of its responses to the clients and ensure the confidentiality of the requests. These operations rely on the security of their cryptographic keys. Thales nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) integrate with Axway VA Server to protect keys, accelerate these operations, and add FIPScompliant key management. nShield HSMs can:
- Protect the OCSP, SCVP response signing and SSL keys for the Axway VA Server
- Improve server performance when there are high volume requests to validate certificates.
- Add compliance with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 and Common Criteria EAL 4+
