StrongAuth CryptoEngine 2.0 is a “crypto swiss-army knife” server to perform cryptographic functions through webservices, while freeing up application developers to focus on business functionality. Its modules include:
- A FIDO Engine to support FIDO U2F key registrations/authentications;
- An Encryption Engine to encrypt/decrypt files using AES/TDES keys;
- Escrowing keys to on-premises key-management system (StrongAuth KeyAppliance);
- Integration to cloud-storage services (AWS S3, Azure and Eucalyptus Walrus);
- A Signing Engine to digitally sign documents, code, etc. with FIPS 140-2 HSM support; and
- An LDAP Engine for AD/LDAP integration for authorization decisions.
StrongAuth, Inc. is a privately held company based in Silicon Valley, California. It is a leader in Enterprise Key Management Infrastructure, bringing new levels of capability and data security at a price point significantly lower than other solutions on the market.
Providing products and services in Symmetric Key Management, Encryption, Tokenization and PKI, StrongAuth is focused on securing data in the areas of Cloud Computing, E-Commerce, Healthcare, Finance and other sectors mandating protection of sensitive data. StrongAuth’s solutions are installed at customer sites around the world and are key components of mission-critical business operations.
StrongAuth has defined a unique web-application architecture – Regulatory Compliant Cloud Computing (RC3) – which enables secure cloud-computing. It has the singular advantage that it not only ensures strong security of sensitive data in the public cloud, but can do so at lower costs than companies currently spend on enterprise security. The RC3 architecture has been validated by customers for securing financial and healthcare data using StrongAuth’s solutions.
StrongAuth also makes many FIDO-enabled web-applications that can be used by businesses immediately (no programming necessary). Two of these business applications are:
CryptoCabinet – an application for companies to support file-sharing, that has AWS, Azure & Eucalyptus integration, while keeping cryptographic keys outside the Cloud;
PKI2FIDO – an application that enables companies/agencies with smartcards/digital certificates to strongly-authenticate them with TLS ClientAuth and then register a “derived” FIDO credential for them without going through a vetting process all over again.
