nShield Container Option Pack

nCOP lets you deploy containerized applications integrated with high-assurance FIPS 140-2 nShield HSMs

nShield Container Option Pack

Developers working with containerized applications may not be familiar with the complexities of how to integrate with high assurance hardware security modules (HSMs). When the time from staging to production is critical you need a proven deployment model and scripts to help reduce the overall development cycle. nShield Container Option Pack (nCOP) makes it easy to build HSM support into these containerized solutions and provides a template deployment model that allows you to focus on the containerized application without having to worry about the HSM integration.

Seamless integration

nCOP is designed to work seamlessly with your nShield Connect, enabling the straightforward and secure integration of HSMs via standard interfaces to containerized applications.

High assurance protection of containerized applications

nCOP allows developers to leverage the dynamic deployment, scalability and orchestration benefits of the container platform while benefiting from access to high-assurance HSMs for processing sensitive data and key material.

Flexible deployment options

Suitable for both developers creating brand new containerized applications and developers who have an existing containerized application that they want to integrate with an nShield HSM

Operating system support

  • Linux distributions only

Supported HSMs

  • Compatible with all nShield Connect HSM models
  • Compatible with nShield as a Service for cloud hosted HSM deployments

Scalability & licensing

  • nCOP has no enforced limitation on the number of hardserver or application containers, and can work with any number of container hosts (physical or virtualized server instances).
  • When used in conjunction with nShield Connect, client licenses will be required depending on the scale of deployment. The option pack includes a multiplier for calculating the number of client licenses required based on the maximum number of running application containers to be deployed. Refer to the guidelines below for the number of client licenses required for different sized deployments.
Number of client licenses per HSM Maximum number of container hosts Maximum number of application containers permitted
5 5 50
10 10 100
15 15 150
20 20 200
>25 25 >250 (recommend purchase of enterprise client license)
