Product Description

The se.SAM™ P220 Cryptomodules

se.SAM™ P220 Serie – The module for time based cryptography The module based on the P210 series but includes an additional very robust and precise real time clock. This enalbes the module to generate temporary keys (ephemeral keys) or to change and syncronize keys – ohne Datenverbindung – on a regular base. In addition, the direct use of a clock enables independent time stamps or the verification of time-based one-time passwords.

The se.SAM™ P220 – simple, universal with extended features and cryptofunctions

  • Suitable and tested for industry, IT and office operation
  • Long-term availability
  • Extreme temperature ranges -40°C to +90°C
  • Driverless – “Plug & Play“ – Independent of OS or CPU-Architectures
  • No libraries or special software necessary
  • Isolated storage areas for protecting cryptographic keys and data
  • Cost-efficient integration by short training periods
  • Integrated PIN-Management
  • Integrated Real-Time-Clock (RTC) for time based crypto features

Integrated clock for dynamic key management

Thanks to the integrated real-time clock, the module is able to create keys independently and keep them synchronised with other modules even without an external power supply or connectivity. Thus, offline verification of one-time passwords (OTP) or certificates is easily possible. The independent real-time clock can of course also be integrated into your individual applications.
