Cryptographic Key Management



Where cryptographic security is critical, such as for businesses in PKI, VPN and internet security, only a physically separate Hardware Security Module offers enough security, making it a critical element in any security system.


An Ultra innovation, the KeyperPlus HSM provides the ultimate level of protection for the most sensitive data and information systems. At the heart of KeyperPlus is Ultra's revolutionary ACCE technology; the flexible crypto platform providing the highest level of assurance – FIPS 140-2, Level 4.

Your security architecture is only as strong as your single point of failure - so why have one at all? Ultra’s Load Balancer fortifies your security network by making sure you are never left dependent on a single unit.

Load Balancer shares the creation and distribution of keys between HSM units, analysing workload and issuing tasks to where they can most efficiently be completed. This results in quicker and more effective key generation and distribution than ever before.

Should a disaster strike, Load Balancer gives you one less thing to worry about. If one location were to be disrupted, Load Balancer automatically redistributes the workload with no interruption to service or disturbance to users.

CryptoSec is a Hardware Security Module, or HSM, specially designed for the banking and finance industry, providing the power needed to tackle multiple currencies and high transaction rates, whilst maintaining processing speed.

With its market-leading emulation capabilities, CryptoSec gives banks newfound flexibility: the opportunity to migrate to a more powerful and flexible RealSec unit without redesigning the network. Unlike other HSMs, CryptoSec stores up to 9999 cryptographic keys on one unit, meaning that it’s not necessary to buy a new HSM every time you exceed the 20-key limit of other systems. It is the only option for the money-savvy.

Where cryptographic services are used to protect an information system, trust and integrity are derived from the security of the underlying signing and encryption keys. This makes protection of these keys critical to the overall trust and integrity of a system.

The Keyper Load Balancer is a highly flexible piece of software that sits between the Keyper Hardware Security Module (HSM) and its Providers (PKCS#11, Microsoft CAPI/CNG Providers). It allows:

Scalability - Aggregated performance of multiple HSMs acting in parallel 
Resilience - Active - active high availability HSM configurations
Automatic Key Backup - key replication over a secured channel
Geographic DR - Architectures supporting service continuity 

All of these services are transparent to the Application and the Provider, without either being ‘aware’ that any of these services are being performed. Up to 16 Keyper HSMs can be handled, appearing as one logical HSM to the application accessing those HSMs via an AEP Provider.
