Block-safe - The specialized HSM for Securing Sensitive Assets in Blockchain Processes

UTIMACO Block-safe was designed to meet the unique requirements for blockchain-based solutions.

The strong protection requirements of blockchain-specific elliptic curves are based on its capability to securely store and manage the encryption keys for key derivation - the public key generation in blockchain processes - inside the secure boundaries of the HSM.

Block-safe effectively secures sensitive identities, keys and data used in distributed ledger technology (DLT) computing platforms with the aim to reduce time to completion, even in complex ecosystems.

Block-safe provides unrivaled physical and logical security for your blockchain processes and sensitive assets used on the blockchain-based computing platforms on unrivaled key generation and key derivation executed within the tamper-resistant and FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant HSM.

The included support for Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) platforms enables reliable transaction validation and storing.

Block-safe complies with the latest regulations being enforced in Play like FINRA, ATS, 5AMLD and FSB and therefore can be utilized for various use cases in different industries like cross-border or interbanking transactions, KYC, or registry as well as for cryptocurrency and other digital assets.

As it comes with integration software supporting various industry standards it is highly flexible. Therefore, it can be easily integrated into an existing cryptographic environment as well as with third party applications like Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) or Ethereum. In addition, Block-safe comes with the dedicated simulator for flexible customization.

Block-safe is available as SeGen 2 and CSe series.
