Thales said Wednesday its hardware security modules will help generate and defend keys against cyber attacks or potential malicious use.

The company’s nShield HSMs have FIPS 140-2 level 3 and Common Criteria EAL4+ certifications as well as comply with eIDAS standards which meets NDCA’s requirements for the new project.

“Our newly launched PKI is at the core of services being offered under Digital Tunisia 2020 ““ a government strategic plan designed to boost our nation's digital economy by enriching online government services and electronic commerce,” said Syrine Tlili, CEO of Tunisia NDCA.

“With the ever-present threat of cyberattacks, malicious insiders, or even employee mistakes, the role of digital credentials has reached new levels of criticality,” noted Philip Schreiber, regional sales director of the Middle East and South Asian region of Thales’ e-Security business.

Schreiber added the company’s HSMs will help clients foster trust between government and citizens as well as reinforce the reliability of online transactions.
