Published on

vSEC:ID Server Key
Using vSEC:ID Server Key server applications can quickly and cost effectively be upgraded to use hardware protected keys instead of file based keys. vSEC:ID Server Key provides similar level of security as an HSM (Hardware Security Module) at a cost more comparable to file based keys.

A typical use case for the vSEC:ID Server Key is a Certificate Authority. A certificate authority has very high security requirements for its root key. vSEC:ID Server Key enables the CA to use normal smart cards to secure the keys.
