3DES is Officially Being Retired

Streamline the migration for your banking applications with
Crypto Service Gateway


According to draft guidance published by NIST on July 19, 2018, the Triple Data Encryption Algorithm (TDEA or 3DES) is officially being retired. This means 3DES will be deprecated for all new applications and usage will be disallowed after 2023.

Legacy infrastructure in banks will face time-consuming and security-sensitive challenges in migrating a plethora of applications to safer crypto-algorithms.

Cryptomathic's Crypto Service Gateway (CSG) streamlines this migration with dynamic policy enforcement and brings unprecedented HSM crypto-agility:

  1. Provides simplified APIs for all legacy applications, enabling easy integration to a complete HSM service platform
  2. Delivers crypto-agility with central security policy enforcement for rapid changes
  3. Controls all cryptography functions and choice of algorithm from one place - without changing application code
  4. Manages keys for all applications
  5. Solves compliance headaches with centralized audit logs
