The Trenton TCS2504 2U Cryptographic Server

The Trenton TCS2504 2U Cryptographic Server

The Trenton Cryptographic System TCS2504 allows a system designer to confidently implement the crucial element of cryptography into their remote systems deployment.

Combining the Trenton Systems HEP8225 HDEC Series System Host Board and its dual, Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 v4 series processors with the HDB8227 backplane and IBM® 4767-002 PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor Hardware Security Module (HSM),  the TCS2504 represents a powerful and versatile building block for secure applications.  This computer hardware combination, in conjunction with our aluminum 2U, 19" rackmount chassis that has a degree of ruggedization that exceeds that of standard off-the-shelf rackmount chassis, the Trenton Cryptographic System family is suited for server room and rugged field deployments that require maximum levels of trust when operating in physically insecure environments.

IBM® 4767-002 Cryptographic Coprocessor Hardware Security Module

IBM® 4767-002 Cryptographic Coprocessor Hardware Security Module

The IBM® 4767-002 PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor (HSM) is a high-end, secure coprocessor implemented on a PCIe card with a multi-chip embedded module. It is a foundation for secure applications such as high-assurance digital signature generation or financial transaction processing, utilizing the IBM®  Common Cryptographic Architecture (CCA) API and security architecture, as well as custom software options. It affords high-security processing and high-speed cryptographic operations at maximum flexibility and maximum trust for a computing system while operating in physically insecure environments.

The IBM®  4767 Hardware Security Module (HSM) has been designed to meet the FIPS 140-2 Level 4 requirements by protecting against attacks that include probe penetration or other intrusion into the secure module, side-channel attacks, power manipulation and temperature manipulation. From the time of manufacture, the hardware is self-protecting by using tamper sensors to detect probing or drilling attempts.  If the tamper sensors are triggered, the 4767 HSM destroys critical keys and certificates, and is rendered permanently inoperable.
