Securing your messaging flows

Hardware Security Module (HSM) protects your SWIFTNet PKI certificates against unauthorised access and is mandatory for signing live traffic and authenticating on production services.

The HSM is a security device which safestores your critical SWIFTNet PKI certificates and generates signatures for your traffic. The device secures the generation, storage and use of cryptographic keys by providing logical and physical protection.

There are two HSM models to address different customers’ needs: HSM tokens and HSM boxes.

Choosing the HSM model to suit your needs

Different models to suit your needs

With three different models available, you can choose an HSM based on your traffic volumes and the level of resilience and scalability you require.

Integrated solution

Installation and configuration is embedded in SWIFTNet Link, which triggers the HSM’s signing operations and monitors correct functioning.

High level of protection

HSMs provide significantly more security than disk-based certificates as the private keys are generated and stored encrypted inside the HSM.
