How HSMs support secure multi-tenancy?

As business grew, so did the threat of compromise or theft of data. To address these risks, both software methods and hardware devices were produced to secure networks, systems and data.

HSMs are dedicated devices, incorporated with both logical and physical protection mechanisms, designed to provide separate, secure operating environments where confidential or sensitive information could be treated without risk of exposure.

What Are Botnets?

Botnets are groups of malware-infected, Internet-connected devices that perform mundane tasks with precision and speed. They are led by bot masters, aka bot herders, who communicate with a C&C server (a computer that instructs infected devices to carry out attacks and perform other functions) via covert channels, such as Internet Relay Chats (IRCs) and websites.

Each individual connected computer in a botnet is called a zombie because the computer or device owner is generally unaware that their machine is mindlessly performing malicious actions. Botnets can wreak all kinds of havoc—from DDoS attacks to cryptocoin mining, from sending spam to spreading fake news.

How hardware security modules could protect your crypto assets

As a security consultant for blockchain projects at Orbs, one of the recurring concerns I hear from customers is how to protect the private keys of their hot and cold wallets.

A hardware security module (HSM) is a tradition security solution which manages digital keys and is been used widely in PKI environments and in the financial sector.

At first glance, using of a HSM might be the perfect solution for blockchain-based solutions. The HSM generates key pairs, has secure storage, and can off-load cryptographic operations from the entire system.
