EKMI (EKADAS KMI) Electronic Key Management Infrastructure

-A +A

EKADAS KMI supports central or distributed generation of key materials. It also automatically delivers any type of crypto key materials to pre planned end crypto units, in a scalable, fast, and secure way.

EKMI have been designed with the primary goals of pre-planned locations, modularity and flexibility. Different security protocols and crypto algorithms can be applied with ease thanks to its updatable Security Module. Along with traditional EKMS scenarios, it also provides interfaces to work with other management systems, which facilitates constructing an umbrella key management system.

HVTC, new generation key transfer and fill device of EKMI, provides additional capabilities on top of the ones provided by most known key fill devices.

For reliability purpose, the system can be operated two redundant management sites. It also supports delivering crypto keys to remote locations using PSTN, H/F, Satellite and Ethernet connections.
