9 Jul 2014 Paris - Bull and PrimeKey, a market expert in Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), are joining forces to enhance data security by integrating the supply management of encryption keys PrimeKey's encryption key management offering with Bull's cryptographic module. The new-generation TrustWay Proteccio HSM (hardware security module) platform from Bull is now integrated with EJBCA, PrimeKey's PKI offering.
PKI enables an organisation's encryption keys to be managed, ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of its exchanges. The rapid changing scale and nature of threats is leading a growing number of organisations to rely on a PKI as the basis of trust to secure their applications. The chain of trust must be protected by the strictest security, by implementing the latest generation of cryptographic modules (HSMs) such as TrustWay Proteccio from Bull.
With this combination of robust technologies, Bull and PrimeKey are together enabling their customers to secure their critical processes, in a way that is transparent to their operations. International EJCBA PrimeKey customers who choose HSM TrustWay Proteccio from Bull will benefit from the latest security features on the market. This includes state-of-the-art and secures key generation and storage in the TrustWay Proteccio cryptographic module. It meets the highest standards of certification, including Common Criteria EAL4 + and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 (in progress).
The EJBCA and TrustWay Proteccio solutions are intended to strengthen the security scenarios used by government agencies such as the Ministries of Defense, Interior, Finance and Health, and businesses that need to manage their encryption keys in compliance with Common Criteria EAL4+.
"Businesses rely on EJBCA PrimeKey, with its Common Criteria EAL4+ certification, to give them the reassurance of security, help them meet regulatory requirements and mitigate risks", stated Björn Jansen, Vice-President Sales at PrimeKey. "With the widespread use of public key infrastructures, centralized key management, using TrustWay as a trusted partner, is essential."
"The TrustWay Proteccio HSM allows customers dealing with more sensitive information - governments, businesses and operators of vital importance - to benefit from the assurance of totally secure key management. This agreement will allow organisations using EJBCA PrimeKey respond to the security threats and compliance requirements of today and tomorrow", commented Philippe Duluc, Vice President at Bull's Security Division.
