Cryptography is a mathematical science used to secure the confidentiality and authentication of data by replacing it with a transformed version. Once transformed, the data can be re-converted to reveal the original information only by someone holding the proper cryptographic algorithm and key. It is a discipline that embodies the principles, means, and methods for transforming data in order to hide its information content, prevent its undetected modification, and/or prevent its unauthorized uses. Procedures and protocols that meet some or all of the above criteria are known as cryptographic systems. The goal of this research is to provide a framework for an Application Programming Interface (API) that can be used to develop secure applications using Hardware Security Modules (HSM). This framework will broker communications between an application and the HSM. Providing a comprehensive API will enable application developers to implement HSM cryptography without extensive knowledge of the underlying cryptographic hardware
