Abstract
(EN)
An air-gapped system enables the secure transfer and control of digital assets, such as those associated with crypto-currency. The system includes an Integration Server for receiving requests from an application interface, a Central Control Center for verifying the requests received and authorizing the requests using digital signatures, and multiple Distributed Data Centers, each including a cold Data Center Hardware Security Module (DC HSM). These DC HSMs securely store and manage cryptographic keys. Each Data Center also includes an offline Processing Unit coupling its DC HSM to a dedicated Remote Controlled Server. The Remote Controlled Server receives requests from the Integration Server and forwards them to the Processing Unit of a DC HSM using a Near-Field Communication (NFC) Interface between the two. Preferably, the NFC interface is physically shielded to resist side channel attacks.

La présente invention concerne un système protégé par un entrefer permettant le transfert et la commande sécurisés d'actifs numériques, tels que ceux associés à une cryptomonnaie. Le système comprend un serveur d'intégration pour recevoir des requêtes provenant d'une interface d'application, un centre de commande central pour vérifier les requêtes reçues et autoriser les requêtes à l'aide de signatures numériques, et de multiples centres de données distribués, comprenant chacun un module de sécurité de matériel de centre de données (DC HSM) à froid. Ces DC HSM stockent et gèrent de manière sécurisée des clés cryptographiques. Chaque centre de données comprend également une unité de traitement hors ligne couplant son DC HSM à un serveur télécommandé dédié. Le serveur télécommandé reçoit des requêtes provenant du serveur d'intégration et les transmet à l'unité de traitement d'un DC HSM en utilisant une interface de communication en champ proche (NFC) entre les deux. De préférence, l'interface NFC est physiquement protégée pour résister à des attaques de canal latéral.
