Is Your Infrastructure Crypto-Agile?
It should be.
We trust hardware, such as HSMs, for key management because of its undeniable strength in protecting the keys from theft. However, it is becoming harder to ignore hardware’s significant disadvantages, namely that it is very difficult (if not impossible) to update and patch.
Hardware that is deployed today can take many years to be replaced, creating dependencies that are extremely hard and costly to change upon the emergence of new vulnerabilities or threats, such as the ROCA attack on Infineon chips where RSA keys could be broken.
The rigidity of hardware is problematic not only because of bugs, but it also makes it challenging to update crypto algorithms when new use cases are introduced such as cryptocurrency and blockchain. There is growing concern about a potentially not-too-distant future where quantum computers threaten existing crypto infrastructure, driving the urgency for crypto-agile infrastructures to be in place now.
The time has come to unbind ourselves from our dependence on hardware and look instead towards software for an agile approach to protecting our keys and our applications.
