High security

Trustway Proteccio netHSM adds a high-security environment to your Windows, Linux, Solaris SPARC and AIX 32/64 bit servers for RSA-ECC-AES cryptographic functions and sensitive custom applications.

Bull cyber Trust compliance


The tamper-proof design of Trustway Proteccio netHSM has been certified under the Common Criteria EAL4+ and the FIPS140-2 Level 3 certification is in progress. It encapsulates secure Trustway cryptographic subsystems, allowing you to run security-sensitive processes in a high-performance manner.

Virtual HSM

Cost-sensitive organizations will be pleased with the competitive pricing of the Trustway Proteccio netHSM family. The advanced virtual HSM capability features eight HSMs in-the-box, providing both partners and end customers with a very flexible price and performance option.

Certified high security, the Trustway Proteccio hardware security module is designed (hardware and software), implemented and manufactured totally by Atos in France. CC EAL4+ certification, Reinforced Qualification (ANSSI QR)*, NATO SECRET and EU RESTRICTED agreements covers hardware and software implementation. FIPS 140-2 level 3 is currently in progress.
*V128/X130 et N° 198/ANSSI/SDE/PSS/BQA version.

The Trustway Proteccio HSM gives access up to 8 virtual HSMs simultaneously. Each virtual HSM is a cryptographic partition strongly separated from the others by dedicated encryption keys, users, administrators and auditors. It offers the ability to share the same HSM between different use cases while keeping the same security level — getting the most of your HSM and reducing cost.

Manageability and high availability are provided by a user-friendly application controlled by access rights — enabling you to administer, configure and manage the HSM, including security policy, user rights, keys management, HSM configuration and updates.

Easy back-up features save all keys encrypted, enabling restoration. Load balancing features process secure cryptographic replication and enable high availability. Trustway Proteccio NetHSM is also available as a white label, allowing you to brand it with your identity and logo.
