Web Services Option Pack
The nShield Web Services Option Pack (WSOP) provides a REST-like API between applications requiring cryptographic key and data protection services and FIPS-certified nShield hardware security modules (HSMs). nShield HSMs perform a variety of cryptographic functions including encryption, decryption, signing, verifying and key generation. These core functions are available to applications through a simple web service interface utilizing the universal https protocol.
Applications that reside anywhere, whether in the cloud, in remote data centers or locally, can access nShield services through https based web service calls via the REST-like API, bringing greater flexibility to today’s varied computing environments.
The efficient, modern web service interface improves the speed with which applications can be developed to access nShield HSM crypto services.
Typically, integrating applications with nShield HSMs requires binding to local host libraries; by using the web services REST-like API, developers benefit from reduced deployment complexity.
Load balancing can be provided using commercial off the shelf load-balancer appliance.
- The WSOP is compatible with all models nShield Solo and Connect HSMs
- Must be installed onto a host running a supported version of the Linux OS and have the nShield Security World software installed.
- Supports Operator Card Set & Softcard protected keys
- Compatible with the nShield Container Option Pack, allowing WSOP instantiations to be containerized.
nShield HSMs can support applications using the Web Services API in conjunction with applications using other supported APIs (PKCS#11, Java, CNG, etc.).
