Description
The nCipher MiniHSM is a fully featured HSM supplied in a single chip package. The MiniHSM offers all the security and key management features of other nCipher modules - but with reduced processing speed. The MiniHSM is an OEM part and will be included within other appliances or products, for example switches or routers. The MiniHSM's real time clock, also makes it suitable for use as a time-stamping engine.
