Alliance Key Manager
FIPS 140-2 certified key management for every platform; IBM I, IBM System z, Windows, Linux and UNIX.
Proper encryption key management, experts say, is becoming more important than encryption itself. Encryption keys represent "the keys to the kingdom," if someone has access to the encryption key, they have access to the most sensitive data in your organization - the enrypted data. Proper key management is a requirement for PCI-DSS compliance. Auditors are scrutinizing how organizations manage keys in response to evolving regulations.
PCI-DSS separation of duties and split knowledge requirements. Encryption keys can be restricted based on several criteria. The most permissive level requires a secure and authenticated SSL/TLS session to the key server. Individual encryption keys can be restricted to users, groups, or specific users in groups. Enterprise-wide groups can be defined and keys can be restricted to Enterprise users, groups, or specific users in groups.
Key change and rotation meet PCI Data Security Standards Automatically or manually rotate encryption keys. Security administrators can define the frequency of key rotation based on internal security policies. When a key change occurs, the new version is created and the old version is moved to a historical database and available for cryptographic operations.
Alliance Key Manager is the most cost-effective FIPS 140-2 certified symmetric key management appliance on the market. We know key management is essential for compliance, so why should cost be a barrier to implementing?
