Public preview: Microsoft Azure Managed HSM TLS Offload Library

Published date: November 10, 2022

Azure Key Vault Managed HSM TLS Offload Library is now in public preview. Our TLS Offload Library supports PKCS#11 mechanisms and functions for SSL/TLS Offload on Azure Managed HSM with F5 and Nginx.

Encryption and decryption of SSL is CPU intensive and can put a strain on server resources.  Offloading is the process of removing the SSL-based encryption from incoming traffic to relieve a web server of the processing burden of decrypting and/or encrypting traffic sent via SSL. In this case processing is offloaded to Azure Managed HSM which a fully managed, highly available, single-tenant, standards-compliant cloud service that enables you to safeguard cryptographic keys for your cloud applications, using FIPS 140-2 Level 3 validated HSMs.
