Utimaco Launches New High-End HSM Series: CryptoServer CSe

Utimaco introduces the latest generation of its FIPS 140-2 security module certified to Level

AACHEN, Germany, September 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The German manufacturer of Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) launches its new product series SafeGuard CryptoServer CSe. The CSe-Series follows from the extremely successful high-end CS-Series-offering twice the performance and maximum security while keeping total cost of ownership to a minimum.

Utimaco introduces the latest generation of its FIPS 140-2 security module certified to Level 4. The new CSe-Series performs high-speed elliptic curve calculations of up to 1,500 operations per second, to name just one key function. This means it offers the fastest software implementation speed in the HSM market. "We always have an eye on the total cost of ownership for our customers. This enables us to provide this new Series at the same cost of the previous model-and even lower operational costs. Sustainability is extremely important to us," explains Matthias Pankert, Vice President HSM. With the CSe-Series, cryptographic performance has been doubled while maintaining low energy consumption. In regards to individual cryptographic operation, effective energy consumption is even reduced by 30%, which is interesting from both a financial and an ecological point of view.

Like its predecessor, the CSe-Series is one of just a few HSMs in the market that meets the requirements for FIPS 140-2 Level 4 certification for physical security. This means, in addition to traditional sectors, it is particularly suitable for highly sensitive applications within growth sectors such as Smart Metering, eID or eHealth.

In terms of technology, the CSe-Series features a PCI Express Bus for faster communication, a new processor, two USB ports as well as a storage capacity that is two to eight times higher-all this in addition to the improved software implementation speed. Like all Utimaco HSMs, the CSe-Series is available either as a 19-inch network appliance or as a plug-in card.

"We continued with our philosophy this time around, too, and kept the investment security for our customers in mind during the development of the CSe-Series,"

explains Dieter Bong, Product Manager CryptoServer. "Thanks to our architecture's downward compatibility, firmware applications can continue to run with the CSe-Series, and it is even possible to run the CS- and CSe-Series in parallel." The tamper technology, too, is at the same high security level-along with the materials used and the build. Certification for FIPS 140-2 Levels 3 and

4 as well as for the German Banking Industry Committee (Deutsche

Kreditwirtschaft) is currently being processed and is expected to be granted at the beginning of next year.
