Certifications and compliance
The ISAE 3000 report ensures the initial key is generated in a compliant, safe environment to mitigate relevant risks.
The ISAE 3402 report ensures the transaction signing environment is safe and includes a control framework and processes to handle client assets securely and mitigate of relevant risks.
FIPS-140.2 level 3 HSMs
FIPS 140-2 is a US government standard for cryptographic module and solution security. Level 3 hardware ensures physical tamper-resistance and identity-based authentication, and a physical or logical separation between interfaces for critical security parameters (CSPs) that enter and leave the module.
High security Swiss data centres
To store sensitive key material, we use Swiss data centres that meet industry leading standards for critical infrastructure (such as Tier IV by the Uptime Institute) for fault tolerance, security and redundancy.
Multi-Party Computation (MPC) is a type of cryptographic technology that removes the single point of failure possible with a private key. By allowing multiple parties to securely sign transactions without any one party being able to see the inputs of the others, MPC adds an additional layer of security.
