Why are Key Blocks important to payment security?

Presented by

Simon Keates, Head of Strategy, Payment Security at Thales and Sean Davies, Thales Pre-Sales Consultant

About this talk

Recent updates to the Payment Card Industry (PCI) PIN Security requirements state that “encrypted symmetric keys must be managed in structures called key blocks”, where the use of the key is cryptographically bound to the key itself. The Thales payShield has full support for key blocks, for both internal storage of keys and exchange of keys with third parties. Join this webinar to understand more about key blocks and how the migration to key blocks will impact applications, databases, and processes, as well as how Thales can help reduce the complexity of the migration .
