Cavium's LiquidSecurity Targets Cryto-as-a-Service

Cavium introduced its "LiquidSecurity" Hardware Security Module (HSM) Family that provides a FIPS 140-2 level 2 and 3 partitioned, centralized and elastic key management solution with the highest transaction/sec performance.


Cavium's LiquidSecurity Solution, which is available as a PCIe adapter family as well as an appliance, addresses the high performance security requirements for private key management and administration while also addressing elastic performance per virtual / network domain for the virtualized cloud environment. Major applications for this product family include Key Management as-a-Service, Database as-a-Service, Crypto as-a-service, Secure DNS, SaaS Applications, Virtual Private Clouds in the Public Cloud and Payment systems.

Feature Highlights
  • SSL handshake offloads for 32 domains – LiquidSecurity family has 32 FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Partitions.  Each partition functions as an independent and fully secure HSM.  
  • Dual FIPS boundary - With the appliance version of the family a dual FIPS 140-2 boundary is also available that provides an added layer of security.
  • Storage for up to 1M keys is supported with multiple appliances in a scalable manner.
  • Tens of Thousands of 2048 bit RSA Ops/sec – LiquidSecurity HSM family provides market leading performance to meet the needs of multiple domains or virtual appliances.  This performance is at least 10 times higher than any other solution on the HSM market today.  This product family also supports 10 Gbps bulk encryption. In addition, multiple LiquidSecurity HSM modules can be pooled together to offer highest performance for mega data centers.
  • Hardware support for 2048 bit RSA key pair generation –robust key generation within the FIPS boundary is a critical component of the overall security this product family provides.
  • Scalability – For the most demanding applications up to 20 LiquidSecurity HSM appliances can be seamlessly connected through the native 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports.
