An Easier Way to Securely Manage Keys
FIPS 140-2 Level 3-compliant, the KMES’ hardware utilizes a reinforced steel chassis, unique bezel locks, and a hardened epoxy barrier containing tamper-responsive sensor wires that instantly zeroize sensitive data during any physical intrusion attempt.
Enterprise-Class Use Cases
– Symmetric key lifecycle management
– Enterprise certificate authority and public key infrastructure (PKI) for offline root, EMV CA, and more
– Registration authority
– Data protection, application encryption, and integration with 3rd-party applications
– Vaultless tokenization
– Quantum-safe hybrid certificate authority issuance
Perfect for Manufacturers
The KMES’ capacity for high-volume key management makes it an ideal solution for manufacturers. Organizations, such as internet of things (IoT) providers, who are responsible for managing a large number of encryption keys are well aware of the difficulties and inconveniences associated with the process, especially if the key management system relies on multi-vendor solutions. The KMES simplifies the key management process by providing a single-source solution for injecting keys and certificates, all the while increasing key security and compliance.
The KMES is adaptable enough to fit into the cryptographic infrastructures of large-scale manufacturers. Additionally, Futurex’s custom development program can provide an additional level of integration for manufacturers needing additional resources.
From device authentication to the generation of keys for POS environments, the KMES is able to handle the symmetric and asymmetric key processes for your industry. The KMES supports all major key types, algorithms, and protocols, with more being continually added as new technologies emerge. Futurex can also develop solutions that are fully customized for your organization’s key and certificate needs, relying on years of successful experiences with previous custom initiatives.
Establish a public key infrastructure (PKI) by using the KMES to manage certificate trees, individual certificates, private keys, signing requests, and more through import, export, generation, tracking, storage, and revocation. Symmetric key processes are made simple through the KMES’ functionality for batch generation, import, and export; automatic expiration; key templates; key group format cloning; and key component printing.
The Quantum Computing Shift
The KMES Series 3 offers expansion functionality to support quantum-safe hybrid certificate authorities. This allows organizations to issue a single certificate that contains both conventional public key algorithms such as RSA and ECC, or quantum-safe ones. This mitigates the inevitable quantum computing risk and allows organizations to make the transition on their own timelines.
