Cryptographic Key Management

Encryption key management servers and key injectors with built-in hardware security modules (HSMs) meet your data security needs. Each hardware security module, by design, is intrusion resistant and surpasses compliance requirements with FIPs 140 2 Level 3-certified data security.

Use Cases

  • Key lifecycle management
  • Certificate authority (CA) for digital signing
  • Public key infrastructure (PKI) for strong authentication
  • Remote, automatic key injection and rotation
  • Centralized management of cryptographic keys
  • Support for every key generation algorithm

Key Lifecycle Management

Futurex helps you manage the entire key lifecycle, from key generation, secure key storage, key rotation, and disposal. The centralized management platform enables granular and global automation, and eliminates manual effort.

  • Supports all major encryption key algorithms
  • Automates key rotation and injection schemes
  • Customize user-level control

Financial Key Management

Futurex key management servers handle both symmetric and asymmetric encryption. They secure private keys, forming the basis for public key infrastructure (PKI) and an offline root certificate authority (CA). This enables mutual authentication between devices and users. The private keys of the offline root CA are secured by FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified HSMs.

  • Optimize your cryptographic infrastructure with offline root and issuing CAs
  • Create a PKI for digital authentication
  • Manage encryption keys from a central, intuitive GUI

Cloud Key Management

Manufacturers of connected devices need large-scale key distribution to secure data during production and deployment. Futurex offers a hardware-based key distribution platform through the VirtuCrypt cloud service. A user-friendly interface allows for flexible customization and to-the-nth-degree scalability.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a key management service (KMS)?

A key management service (KMS) is a managed solution that simplifies the creation and control of cryptographic keys that are used to protect your enterprise’s data. Futurex key management services provide a secure, functional platform for businesses to create and manage these different keys and certificates all in one convenient location. Users can store, delete, and keep track of existing keys and certificates as well as generate new keys and certificates as needed.

What is the Key Management Enterprise Server (KMES) Series 3?

The Key Management Enterprise Server (KMES) Series 3 is a scalable and versatile solution for managing keys, certificates, and other cryptographic objects. Built around Futurex’s cryptographic technology, the KMES’s modular system architecture provides a custom solution to fulfill the unique needs of organizations across a wide range of industries. Full integration with Futurex’s solution suite enables the KMES to support unparalleled functionality expansion options as well as full management of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and certificate authority (CA).
