Utimaco, a leading manufacturer of HSM devices, has released SecurityServer 4.21 and CryptoServer SDK 4.21 for its line of hardware security modules (HSMs).
The new SecurityServer 4.21 introduces hardware acceleration for Brainpool “random” curves, and comes with improvements such as
- Key Wrapping using AES GCM/CCM modes of operation
- ECDSA signatures with SHA3 hashing according to upcoming PKCS#11 3.0
- Extended functionality of command line key management tool “p11tool2” and “cxitool”
For the HSM development environment, CryptoServer SDK 4.21 enables the usage of the new SecurityServer features and adds another option for RSA key generation, making RSA key generation more efficient when specific requirements for prime factors must be met.
At the same time, Utimaco is releasing a new CryptoServer LAN image that fixes a few issues which were recently discovered.
