Injecting keys for securing payment processes and smart devices
With the increasing number of POS devices, securing the cardholder’s data during payment processing has become mandatory. The number of connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT) is growing exponentially in the automotive, manufacturing & IoT industry, increasing the risk of manipulating certain devices. As a result, the authenticity, integrity, and confidentiality of the device or data must be guaranteed.
Key injection solutions are widely applicable for injecting encryption keys at the point of sale (POS), securing the identities of smart devices, and for device attestation.
Key injection is the starting point for securely injecting encryption keys to safeguard the cardholder’s data. It is also used to securely manage an IoT device over the course of its product lifetime. To ensure that device identities are not compromised, keys need to be generated by an HSM.
