Key Management Device - Data Sheet

The Key Management Device (KMD) from Thales is a compact, secure cryptographic device (SCD) that enables you to securely form keys from separate components. KMD generates keys in a manner that is compliant with relevant security standards, including X9 TR-39, ANSI X9.24-1 and PCI PIN Security. Unlike traditional approaches, this critical key management task can be carried out without any physical connection to a production HSM, providing greater operational flexibility without compromising security. A single KMD at a remote location can form keys for multiple payment HSMs distributed across multiple data centers.
