What interfaces do general-purpose HSMs support?

The types of client libraries and application programming interfaces (APIs) that an HSM supports depends on the manufacturer. Futurex HSMs are designed to support the widest range of APIs available, enabling easy integration between our HSMs and client applications. Futurex HSMs also feature the Excrypt API, a vendor-neutral interface that simplifies HSM-to-application communication. Futurex’s integration engineers have coded to the standards PKCS#11, Microsoft CNG, KMIP, and others, creating our own versions of these libraries. That way, if a client is using PKCS#11 commands, their application can send those commands to our library, which translates them into commands for our HSMs. This simplifies things for the customer, who doesn’t have to do any additional coding to make this happen.
