Product Security makes an increasing use of cryptographic keys to secure firmware and management software. Each new chip comes with its own hardware security mechanisms to support secure boot and secure firmware upgrade. As an integrator of these chips, a vendor must maintain a consistent approach to these security features, from design and development to manufacturing.

 

The protection of the vendor keys is of utmost importance to the security of the supply chain and the trust our customers can have in the security of our products. To achieve high level of security, the use of hardware security modules (HSM) in the development infrastructure is mandatory. They are also used to provision unique device secrets during manufacturing of Eviden products, more specifically all the BullSequana servers, from Edge to Enterprise and High-Performance Computing (HPC), as well as Quantum Learning Machine (QLM).

 

 

The Hardware Security Architect will interact with:

 

  • The different Product managers who are the stakeholders responsible for the delivery of the products to Eviden’ customers.
  • Product R&D teams to ensure smooth integration with the security features that they are developing.
  • The HSM Integration team to organize the development of the necessary features to support hardware security functions in the products.
