Description
The MiniHSM and MiniHSM for nShield Edge F3 are fully featured HSMs supplied in a single chip package. The MiniHSM Modules offer all the security and key management features of other nShield modules but with reduced processing speed. The MiniHSM modules are OEM parts and will be included within other appliances or products, for example switches or routers. The MiniHSM modules have a real time clock which also makes them suitable for use as a time-stamping engine.
