payShield family of Payment HSMs

Designed for the payment industry, payment HSMs are proven solutions that deliver capabilities for issuing credentials, processing transactions and managing keys.

What Payment HSMs Do

Payment hardware security modules (HSMs) are used throughout the global payment ecosystem by issuers, service providers, acquirers, processors and payment networks. They play a fundamental role in securing payment credential issuing, user authentication, card authentication and sensitive data protection for both face-to-face and digital remote payments. The cryptographic needs of all major payments applications for contact chip, contactless chip, mobile secure elements and host card emulation applications are supported to address the evolving security standards from organizations including EMVCo, PCI SSC and GlobalPlatform as part of broader security audit compliance requirements.

  • The Most Popular Use Cases

For more than 30 years, Thales payment HSMs have been involved in a wide range of applications. The main role of a payment HSM is to protect cryptographic keys and sensitive data in a highly secure manner such that the integrity of two fundamental processes is maintained:

1. Equipping consumers to make payments

  • Dealing with the complexity of EMV chip cards or mobile-based applications
  • Keeping control of critical user credential assets
  • Maintaining a high level of security (to avoid counterfeiting or rogue payment instruments)

2. Facilitating a secure payments process

  • Being able to scale quickly to handle higher transaction volumes
  • Ensuring that sensitive data is protected at all times
  • Facilitating transactions originating from a diverse range of payment instruments (with more and more no longer under bank control).
