Data Protection in Cloud Applications Thanks to Utimaco's Flexible HSM Technology

AACHEN, Germany, November 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Utimaco is the world's first company to present an OEM program for HSMs - at CARTES in Paris, from November 6 to 8, 2012, Hall 4 at Stand M062

At CARTES 2012, Utimaco Software AG and its partners are presenting innovative solutions for hardware security modules (HSM) as anchors of trust. In addition to eID and payment, cloud applications are the focus of this year's exhibition, with special emphasis on data protection and compliance for business solutions.

Utimaco's HSMs form the foundation for numerous innovations requiring the highest security standards. Particularly in the cloud there is the need to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access, while ensuring scalability, reliability and high availability at the same time.

In line with Utimaco's theme "As unique as you are", the HSMs are so flexible that they make nearly every cloud application significantly more secure, which is achieved by leveraging applied cryptography. "Data protection and compliance are key needs, next to cloud business solutions. With our HSMs as an anchor of trust, we and our partner In-Webo are together showing cloud-based authorization solutions at CARTES 2012," proudly reports Jörn Horn, Business Development Manager HSM for Utimaco.

The France-based specialists for authorization have remained true to their vision of a cloud-based authorization platform - and thus developed a solution using Utimaco HSMs which allows a central security criterion, such as authorization, to be outsourced to the in-house IT department without any worries. Because the platform is in the cloud, it is not only flexible but also lowers both investment as well as operational costs while simultaneously guaranteeing compliance. Thanks to the use of HSMs, the platform can verify its own integrity and is immune against external attacks. "Among HSM providers, only Utimaco's products are able to run our audited authorization algorithm and meet the strictest high availability requirements at the same time," says Didier Perrot, CEO for In-Webo.

As par for the course at Utimaco, the company's own engineers were able to actively support the development of In-Webo's platform within the framework of the comprehensive partner program. "Depending on the level of partnership, our partner can rely on a customized level of support by Utimaco," says Björn Jansen, Partner Manager HSM for Utimaco.

Based on years of experience in the support of individual projects, such as that from In-Webo, Utimaco is now going a step further when it comes to customization. As the first manufacturer in the HSM market, Utimaco offers an OEM program which enables providers of all-in-one solutions to create tailor-made solutions with HSMs.

At CARTES 2012, Utimaco is presenting its new OEM program, which specifically encompasses the following four modules:

  • Product: The broad and proven product range of SafeGuard CryptoServer with its entire scope - from a "legacy" HSM solution to a software development kit.
  • Consulting: A comprehensive consulting module with which the clients can draw on more than 30 years of experience in integration.
  • Logistics: Adaptable global logistics processes.
  • Support: A custom support package tailored to clients' requirements - from assistance with software development for HSMs to support during malfunctions.

Utimaco is presenting its innovative OEM program, as well as its CryptoServer with the use of 3D animations, at CARTES 2012, Stand M062 in Hall 4.

There is no doubt that Big Data is here and getting bigger every day. Building a Big Data infrastructure today is no easy task. There are an enormous number of choices for database engines and technologies. To make things even more challenging, requirements are getting more sophisticated, and the standard paradigm of supporting historical analytics queries is often just one facet of what is needed. As Big Data growth continues, organizations are demanding real-time access to data, allowing immediate and actionable interpretation of events as they happen. Another aspect concerns how to deliver ...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
As we approach the next @ThingsExpo, to be held June 9-11 at the Javits Center in New York, my thoughts naturally turn to the Internet of Things. The IoT is a leviathan—in the best possible sense of the term—that will sweep up most everything in the ocean of data and technology being created today and tomorrow. But rather than try to grasp all of its possible uses, for today I'm looking at “just” the Industrial Internet part. I just read a long paper co-authored by Tim Berners-Lee about the possibility of describing a “web science,” that is, discipline that combines the study involved ...
