Ledger HSM signing

Shawn Butchart

A hardware security module (HSM) is a physical computing device that safeguards and manages digital keys for strong authentication through cryptography. Every time you create a transaction and send bitcoins from your Cancoin wallet, the signature provided by Cancoin comes from an HSM in our datacenter.

In fact, Cancoin uses a federated array of Ledger HW1 modules in our highly secure datacenter to ensure complete protection of our signing key at all times.
