Abstract or Summary:
This talk will cover the problem with password databases, and attempt to fix the problem by using a hardware security module (HSM) to secure the password database from over-the-wire theft. I will cover the minimum requirements of an HSM, discuss currently available HSMs, and then introduce a simple, fast, and inexpensive DIY solution that costs a little more than $20 per server.
