Key Protection supported by Random Number Generation (RNG)
Within certain industries, such as the financial services sector and lottery and gaming industry, there is a need to ensure real-time availability of data for payment transactions, electronic documents and applications, while at the same time, the necessity to protect sensitive customer data as well as proprietary information. These highly regulated industries are also faced with increasing levels of stringent compliance and demanding IT processes.
Securing digital assets is more important than ever. Cybersecurity infrastructures are based on the exchange and use of digital cryptographic keys. Random numbers are critical as they are used to generate the keys which are used for encrypting data and are generated by a process where the outcome is unpredictable and cannot be reproduced.
Using a hardware-based source of entropy for RNG, Utimaco HSMs implement a hybrid random number generator complying with DRG.4 requirements, the highest level of security for DRG.
