    Oberthur Card Systems CPS: Card Issuance and Management with SafeNet ProtectServer HSM
    Smart card account details, including cryptographic keys and certificates, are used to authenticate cards and create digital signatures.  The digital signature is unique to the transaction and cannot be reused successfully – thereby adding security to smart card usage. SafeNet ProtectServer HSM is a PCI-compliant expansion card that is FIPS 140-2 level 3-validated. ProtectServer adds extra security to payment processes by providing crypto management and security that also safeguards identity and authentication to provide safe access to systems and services, making it a perfect complement to Oberthur’s Card Systems.
