The YubiHSM 2 is a low-cost Hardware Security Module (HSM) for servers and IoT gateways, offering advanced digital key protection capabilities and benefits. It improves on the YubiHSM 1 with support for asymmetric encryption. YubiHSM 2 provides the highest levels of security for cryptographic digital key generation, storage, and management, supporting an extensive range of enterprise environments and applications.
The device is tuned to handle data protection and secure processing for most any enterprise, which does not require super- charged throughput capabilities. YubiHSM 2 inherits from the original YubiHSM 1 protection against physical intrusion with the use of a designated secure element processor that makes data extraction or other means of "hacking" very difficult. Deletion of YubiHSM 2 keys is triggered on intrusion events. In addition, the key store can be stored encrypted with AES-256 (passphrase needed on startup).
