Hardware Security Modules for Tactical and Price sensitive Cryptographic applications that require Tamper Reactive Key Privacy

"The BlackVault HSM.TAC is a unique combination of Electronics, Mechanicals and an Iconic GUI that provides Warfighters with NSA approved secure tactical communications that are intuitive.."

Engage Black expands the BlackVault Hardware Security Module product line with 2 additional Ethernet attached models the BlackVault HSM.RAS and the BlackVault HSM.TAC. They are remotely managed by BVGUI by an intuitive menu driven application. M of N authentication and comprehensive key backup are employed for additional security.

The BlackVault HSM.TAC targets the need for a military grade HSM that has: a compact form factor; smart card with cambered retention; and an operating temperature range that fits within Tactically deployed communications kit's environmental requirements such as NSA’s Commercial Solutions for Classified. CSfC requires that the Certificate Authorities for Multi-layered VPNs utilizes an HSM.

The BlackVault HSM.RAS is a cost reduced commercial version with an integrated Smart Card reader that utilizes an extruded aluminum case that has flanged end plates for securely mounting: within a 1U shelf/locking drawer; on DIN rail or wall mount. The RAS is priced very competitively for a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 HSM.

Engage Black’s initial HSM offering, the BlackVault HSM.NAV, is managed via integrated Touch Screen and Smart Card reader. This approach has served the desktop and the stored root key HSM applications very well. The intuitive Menu driven Graphic Touch Screen interface of the BlackVault HSM.NAV was ported into the BVGUI application.

"The BlackVault HSM.TAC is a unique combination of Electronics, Mechanicals and an Iconic GUI that provides Warfighters with secure tactical communications that are intuitive." said Mark Doyle CEO Engage Black.

The BlackVaults securely boot up into the prescribed application and once authenticated, is ready to go. It can also be used in HSM mode where it supports existing HSM applications using traditional APIs (PKCS#11, CAPI/CNG, JCE, etc.), and can incorporate custom functionality.

The BlackVault are the cryptographic appliances of Engage’s “Black” product line, which includes the BlackDoor (Ethernet Encryptors), BlackBond (Circuit Encryptors), and BlackTube (Circuit to Packet Encryptors) solutions. Engage Black products are produced in America and supported Worldwide.
