PacStar 413 HSM Sled

PacStar 413 adapts Engage Black, BlackVault Hardware Security Module (HSM) devices to integrate into PacStar 400-Series compact solutions. The combination creates a rugged small form factor HSM that provides FIPS-140-2 Level 3+ certified crypto key generation, storage and signing support for use with certificate authorities (CA), while taking advantage of the PacStar 400-Series modularity. PacStar 413 is ideal to forward deployed secure key management for use in public key infrastructure solutions – and is designed to follow Commercial Solutions for Classified requirements, supplementing online CAs.

The sled provides snap-in integration for the BlackVault HSM including:

  • Physical adaptation of the HSM into the PacStar 400-Series chassis
  • (1) 10/100 copper RJ-45 Ethernet interface, exposed on the front of the HSM
  • Integrated smart card reader with card retention device
  • Supports PacStar 400-Series standard interconnect enabling modules to be ‘snapped’ together in the field and share power
  • Locking features front and back, for secure transport

PacStar 413 is designed to work in conjunction with PacStar 400-Series communications modules serving the tactical and expeditionary communications needs of small teams that deploy worldwide and have secure communication requirements in austere environments. PacStar 413 enables teams from US DoD, Coalition Forces, Homeland Security, first responders and civilian organizations to easily and securely manage crypto keys.
