The storage and management of cryptographic values such as encryption keys is a vital element of any system providing cryptographic security services. SEAcurIT-e® encompasses the whole key management process and is a practical and effective solution to security issues that are fundamental to the successful and effective use of cryptographic techniques, such as ensuring that keys are not vulnerable to compromise while stored. It is an ideal framework to support secure applications, and is supremely suited to software environments.
SEAcurIT-e® offers the security advantages of distributed security and trust, combined with the benefits of centralised management and control. The distributed architecture ensures that there is no need to place all security and trust in any one part of the system.
SEAcurIT-e® is designed from the outset with the presumption that stored key information can be compromised and subject to analysis or attacks such as an exhaustive (or brute force) search to remove any security protection. SEAcurIT-e® ensures that stored key information is immune to such attacks.
The highly scalable architecture consists of a number of distinct components, each performing a specific task. These components may be arranged or outsourced as desired without any compromise or relinquishing of control in security, ensuring that the system is adaptable and flexible to suit.
The system is highly resilient, and a user's SEAcurIT-e® key management parameters may be updated at any time without necessitating an update of the user's managed cryptographic values or password.
