Multiple Certificate Authorities
Multiple CAs
EMV CA can accommodate CA hierarchies of large enterprises and support CA functions for each country or sub-region.
Secure Administration
EMV CA is operated under dual control where users sign in using FIPS certified smart cards with defined roles as Administrator, Operator or Auditor. No single user can get full access to the system.
Secure Administration
Audit Logs
EMV CA provides tamper evident audit logging. The audit logs are chained and integrity protected.
Hardware Security Module
All sensitive cryptographic operations are performed in FIPS 140-2 L3 certified hardware security modules (HSMs).
System Architecture - On Premise
EMV CA server is managed through an administration client that provides graphical user interface. EMV CA Server communicates with the administration client only over mutually authenticated and encrypted network connection. The EMV CA server accesses the HSM where sensitive key material is stored for issuing the certificates and several HSMs can be utilized for high availability and disaster recovery. The issued certificates are stored in the database.
On Premise Solution
System Architecture - Cloud Option
Reduce your investment cost by utilizing Thales Cloud HSM. You don’t need to own HSM appliances, as Thales will manage the appliances for you and you'll still have solo control over your key material. The data centers that host the HSM service are certified to ISO27001 and PCI-DSS. The service is certified to ISO27001, SSAE16, and SOC2 and utilizes Luna FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified HSM appliances. The data centers are located in Frankfurt, Ottawa and Dallas. The service includes SLA, 2 factor authentication, build-in high availability and automatic backup.
