Main Personalization Modules
Key management (KM)
Interfaces to a PCI cryptographic card (HSM). Allows external systems to achieve cryptographic operations related to the smart card personalization process. Security level guarantees that neither keys nor confidential data are in clear outside hardware-protected tokens thus preserving cardholder data secrecy and information integrity during the complete issuance process.
Data Preparation (DP)
Generates all the necessary data according to the profile configured during the implementation. Manages the preparation of data specifically requested during the chip personalization phase.
Card Production (CP)
Personalization software connecting to card personalization equipment (ie Embosser). Directly communicate with the personalization equipment and with the Key Management to provide online cryptographic operation during the personalization phase.
