LinuxPR: New PKI-cryptoki product for Linux: Eracom's CSA7000 hardware brings

Oct 05, 1999, 01:26 (0 Talkback[s])

"Australian IT security company ERACOM has released a Linux version of its CSA7000 encryption adapter and development libraries. This release by ERACOM is intended to enable development of security applications where encryption processing and storage of cryptographic keys in hardware is critical to ensuring the integrity of security applications."

"Historically ERACOM has focused on the banking and finance industries where its Security Modules (ESMs) are installed for processing ATM and EFTPOS transactions. The CSA7000 is a derivative of the ESM's technology in terms of encryption processing functionality."

"The move by ERACOM to make available its CSA7000 adapter board and software development libraries acknowledges growing concerns by various industries that information and financial transactions across the internet, intranets and extranets, are vulnerable to hackers. Adoption of the Linux platform coincides with the surge of interest in the OS and its expected growth as the platform of choice for Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) applications."
