The Key Role of HSMs in Secure Permissioned Blockchains for Banking and Payment Services

In many permissioned blockchain networks like Corda, notaries are dedicated nodes. Built as a decentralized service, they replace the role that miners play in other blockchains like the Bitcoin blockchain. Notaries are also in charge of validating and signing transactions.

In what follows, we will see how HSMs would play a vital role in such notary nodes.
