Earlier this week, hardware company Yubico launched the world’s smallest and cheapest Hardware Security Module (HSM) called the YubiHSM 2.
The module, which is used by servers and IoT gateways for managing authentication and encryption, is a lot smaller than other HSMs currently on the market. It comes as an ultra-slim “nano” USB key the size of a thumbnail which addresses the problem of bulky hardware.
It also equipped with features including Secure Microsoft’s Active Directory Certificate Services. It also provides enhanced protection for cryptographic keys, supports Windows, Linux, and Mac OS, and enables 16 concurrent connections.
