nShield Web Services v3.3.0 User Guide


The Web Services Option Pack (WSOP) provides users of Security World Software with the ability to remotely use their Security World keys via a REST (Representational State Transfer) API for signing, verification, encryption, and decryption. Only authenticated clients are permitted access to the service, providing assurance that your Security World keys remain usable only by clients that are permitted access.

WSOP is installed on top of your Security World Software, allowing you to use your existing applications and keys via the REST API, and to carry out remote management of keys, for example key creation. All Security World keys are protected by an nShield Hardware Security Module (HSM), ensuring the confidentiality and integrity of these keys is maintained.
