A '''hardware security module''' (also called a '''host security module''') ('''HSM''') is a type of [[secure]] [[cryptoprocessor]] targeted at managing [[digital key]]s, accelerating [[cryptoprocess]]es in terms of [[digital signing]]s/second and for providing strong [[authentication]] to [[access]] [[critical key]]s for [[server application]]s. These modules are physical [[device]]s that traditionally come in the form of a [[plug-in card]] or an external [[TCP/IP]] [[security device]] that can be attached directly to the [[server]] or general purpose [[computer]].
