KAYTUS V2 Series Servers Obtains the Cryptographic Module Security Certification against ISO/IEC 19790:2012
KAYTUS V2 Series Servers are the first server globally to receive this certification, featuring security and reliability in the underlying architecture.
Singapore, October 18 - KAYTUS, a leading IT infrastructure provider, received the cryptographic module security certification against ISO/IEC 19790:2012 International Standard, becoming the first to be certified in the server industry. The cryptographic module in BMC of the V2 series servers provides high security and reliability in the underlying architecture through upgrades in design and lifecycle assurance, enabling customers to deal with challenges for data security more easily.
The servers, as the infrastructure in the IT industry, have been utilized in industries including banking, telecommunication, and hyperscale data centers with the rise of emerging technologies such as cloud computing and big data. Thus, server security is receiving great attention. The BMC is key to server management, ensuring secure and reliable operation as it provides operation and maintenance functions, including remote control, fault diagnosis, configuration deployment, and update. The cryptographic module provides the guarantee in underlying architecture for various security technology applications of BMC, so its importance is self-evident.
The cryptographic module security certification against ISO/IEC 19790:2012 is given by the British Standards Institution (BSI). BSI, founded in 1901, is a founding member of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and participated in the establishment of the globally recognized ISO management system standards. ISO/IEC 19790:2012 specifies security requirements for encryption modules utilized in security systems to protect sensitive information in computer and telecommunication.
During Singapore cybersecurity week activity on ISO19790, the KAYTUS V2 series servers received the certification, indicating the advanced and high reliability of the BMC cryptographic module in V2 series servers, which ensures the security of services operated in BMC including web, SSH, VNC, KVM, and virtual media.
The cryptographic module utilized in the BMC out-of-band management module of the V2 series servers comprehensively meets the high standards of ISO/IEC 19790:2012 in terms of roles, service & authentication, software/firmware security, operating environment security, lifecycle assurance, self-testing, and sensitive security parameter management.
● Improved security in key application scenarios through cryptographic module design; KAYTUS strengthens the confidentiality of sensitive parameters utilized in cryptographic module integrity, cryptographic algorithm correctness, and cryptographic operation process to provide a solid security foundation in key application scenarios such as finance, government, and cloud;
