Key custody

In BLOOCK, you can create any key using different custody modes:

  • Local mode: The local mode consists of creating a key where the user stores it's private information.
  • Management mode: The managed mode consists of creating a key secured by the BLOOCK service using a FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified software-protected infrastructure.

In any case we do not have the private key, your key will be stored in a software-protected service that complies with the security level of FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified.
