FIPS 140-2 Level 4 is the gold standard for protecting sensitive data and IBM i on Power Systems provides an efficient solution to meet this standard with Hardware Security Modules called IBM cryptographic coprocessors.
As IBM i users and software vendors move to cloud-based solutions, some find it complex and costly to use cryptographic coprocessors in the cloud. For example, PowerVS and other cloud solutions running IBM i do not support this technology natively due to the cost and complexity of delivering cryptographic hardware in a shared cloud computing model.
To address this market need, a new solution was needed to deliver a flexible and scalable cryptographic solution for all IBM i users. FNTS, an IBM managed services provider and CLAI Payments, a payment solution provider worked together with IBM to build an encryption-as-a-service solution using a hybrid cloud architecture and IBM i software. Learning Objectives:
• Learn how to leverage an IBM i encryption solution as-a-service to avoid the cost of buying and managing cryptographic hardware.
• Learn how this solution provides an extra level of defense against data breaches by provisioning encryption keys at the edge separate from encrypted data.
• Learn best practices for consuming IBM encryption technology from external applications to ensure best response time, availability and agility while adapting to ever-changing security requirements.
