HSM - BlueCat Address Manager - 8.2.0

Address Manager Administration Guide

BlueCat Address Manager

A Hardware Security Module (HSM) is a secure cryptographic processor that generates encrypted zone keys for secure DNS zone signing.

Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server support HSMs through DNSSEC. An HSM extends and improves DNSSEC functionality by localizing key generation and master zone signing on the HSM server instead of the BlueCat appliance/VM. BlueCat’s HSM implementation supports integration with Thales nShield Connect® HSM appliances.

Note: Thales appliances with nCSS version 11.70 are compatible with BlueCat Enterprise DNS.
