Engage validates BlackVault HSM interoperability with Red Hat Certificate System 9.4



Engage Black, a Cryptographic Appliance manufacturer, announces today the successful integration of the Red Hat Certificate System 9.4 within the BlackVault Hardware Security Module (HSM).

NSA’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) Program has been established to enable the use of commercial products in layered solutions protecting classified National Security Systems data.

The Red Hat Certificate System 9.4 is now an NSA CSfC approved CA with NIAP certification for compliance with the Common Criteria Protection Profile for Certification Authorities (v2.1). X.509 certificate issuance for individuals, routers, webservers, VPNs, and internet phones. RSA and NIST/NSA SUITE B-complaint ECC key types are supported.

The BlackVault HSM is a FIPs 140-2 Level 3 network attached HSM module that performs: key generation and management, cryptographic operations for VPN network authentication, data encryption, regulatory compliance and critical security systems with support for PKCS#11, JAVA, and Microsoft CNG cryptographic APIs.

“VPN privacy requires a private key whose seed source is indeterministic and isolated. The BlackVault HSM achieves these absolute privacy objectives.” Said Mark Doyle CEO Engage Black. “Validation with Red Hat’s Certificate Authority provides CSfC integrators with a Made in America HSM that also fits in Tactical kits.”

Red Hat specializes in the design and development of standards-conforming conventional and public key encryption and authentication software.


Engage Black manufactures innovative cryptographic solutions that: securely generate and manage cryptographic keys and operations; and encrypt data at rest and in motion.
