Introduction Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are specialized hardware devices that protect sensitive information, such as cryptographic keys and digital certificates, by storing them securely and performing cryptographic operations in a tamper-resistant environment. In this article, I will discuss the design of an HSM system.

When designing an HSM system, the following considerations should be taken into account:

  1. Security: The HSM system must be designed with security as the top priority. This…
