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.
