KeyBRIDGE™ Platform

KeyBRIDGE is a self-contained hardware based centralized key management platform that solves many distinct business requirements related to the utilization of cryptography.  As its name suggests, KeyBRIDGE closes the gaps within the industry that are caused by proprietary key naming and key formatting scenarios.  KeyBRIDGE leverages an internal FIPS 140-2 Level 3 HSM and supports both symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic key management, distribution, and lifecycle tracking.

KeyBRIDGE stores all keys as bundles that are encrypted under a 256-bit AES System Master Key (SMK). Additionally, KeyBRIDGE provides support for both TR-31 and other manufacturer proprietary bundling techniques. By forging cooperative development relationships with dozens of worldwide PED manufacturers and all major HSM vendors, KeyBRIDGE has achieved key format interoperability.

With built-in dual control and split knowledge enforcement, detailed audit logging, and centralized key management, KeyBRIDGE automates many time consuming compliance-based activities.  KeyBRIDGE increases productivity by automating compliance requirements and supporting key injection for multiple devices through a single system.
