What is (Hardware security module)?

A hardware security module (HSM) protects and oversees digital keys, executes encryption and decryption capacities for digital signatures, confirmation and other cryptographic capacities. The highlights of an HSM are onboard secure cryptographic key generation and utilization of cryptographic and delicate information material, such as executing encryption functions. HSMs are additionally sent to oversee straightforward information encryption keys for databases and keys for storage devices such as disk or tape.
