Title: CRYPTOGRAPHIC OBJECT MANAGEMENT ACROSS MULTIPLE REMOTE SITES
Abstract:
A cryptographic object management system is provided that includes physically separated first and second object management sites. The first and second object management sites each respectively include HSMs, a HSM server connected to each of the HSMs, and a persistent layer connected to the HSM server. The HSM servers respectively manage operation of each of the HSMs. The HSM server of the first object management site includes an object manager module that manages and controls the cryptographic object management system. The persistent layers respectively store cryptographic objects for use by the HSMs. Each of the HSMs respectively performs crypto-processing on one or more of the cryptographic objects.
