What is EviCore NFC HSM?

EviCore NFC HSM stands for Evidential Core Near Field Communication Hardware Security Module. It is a technology that combines hardware encryption and NFC communication protocols to protect your cryptographic keys and secrets. It is a hybrid encryption solution that uses a secure element that can be accessed only without contact via a 64 KB EEPROM memory. A cryptographic key is a piece of information that is used to encrypt or decrypt data. A secret is any sensitive data that you want to keep confidential, such as a password, a cryptocurrency address, an encryption key, an identification card, a bank account, a recovery phrase, a phone number, or a secret note.

EviCore NFC HSM allows you to store your keys and secrets in a contactless NFC device, such as a card, a sticker, or a keychain. The device is powered via the NFC signal of the Android phone serving as the HSM terminal and IHM. The device has an EEPROM memory that can store up to 64 KB of data. The data stored in the memory are encrypted without contact from the EviCore NFC HSM application which performs encryption and decryption operations using state-of-the-art algorithms, such as AES 256 bits and RSA 4096 bits.

EviCore NFC HSM also implements anti-cloning and anti-replay mechanisms to prevent unauthorized access or duplication of your secrets. The device has a patented power supply monitoring and protection device with black box that ensures the integrity and availability of the device. The device also has a patented wireless access control system that allows you to define two distinct access profiles: administrator and users, without allowing them to access each other’s secrets without their authorization. The device also has a patented segmented key authentication system that allows you to define up to 9 trust criteria for encrypting your secrets, such as geolocation, BSSID, password, or fingerprint. These criteria increase your security and convenience by allowing you to access your secrets only with the required information.

What are the benefits of EviCore NFC HSM?

EviCore NFC HSM offers you many benefits to secure your cryptographic keys and secrets. Here is a table that summarizes some of them:

Benefit Description
Portability EviCore NFC HSM is a small and lightweight device that can be attached to any NFC-enabled smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. It does not require any external power source or cable connection.
Flexibility EviCore NFC HSM can be used for various applications, such as encryption, decryption, signature, verification, authentication, key exchange, key derivation, random number generation and more. It supports multiple cryptographic algorithms and standards, such as AES, RSA, ECC, SHA, HMAC, etc.
Security EviCore NFC HSM provides a high level of security for both keys and data. It uses a hardware-protected secure element (SE) to store keys and perform cryptographic operations. The SE is tamper-resistant and self-destructs in case of physical or logical attacks. The communication between the device and the host is encrypted using NFC encryption protocols. The device also implements anti-cloning and anti-replay mechanisms to prevent unauthorized access or duplication.
User-friendliness EviCore NFC HSM is easy to use and manage. It does not require any installation or configuration on the host. It can be activated by simply tapping it on the NFC reader of the host.
