nCipher will be the first HSM vendor to support the advanced Elliptic Curve Menezes-Qu-Vanstone (ECMQV) algorithm, a more efficient signed key exchange mechanism developed at Certicom.
The toolkit, which is available in C code, includes: - Elliptic curve digital signature algorithm (ECDSA) (FIPS-validated) for digital signatures; - Elliptic curve Menezes-Qu-Vanstone (ECMQV) for key agreement and transport; - SHA-1 and SHA-2 (FIPS-validated) for hashing; - Advanced encryption standard (AES) (FIPS-validated) for strong encryption; - Random number generation (RNG) (also FIPS-validated); - Point compression for size and performance efficiencies; and - Support for Windows and Linux platforms.
