TAURUS-PROTECT is a highly secure digital asset storage solution developed for exchanges, banks, and asset managers. It has been developed in-house by a team of bankers, hedge-fund executives as well as world-class cryptographers and distributed systems engineers. Its architecture relies on defense in-depth principles.
The architecture caters for persistent and redundant infrastructure, with a focus on no single points of failure. Private keys storage and signature execution take place in Hardware Security Modules (HSMs). Transaction requests are digitally signed using secure hardware components (in addition to HSMs). The whole solution is regularly pen-tested and audited.
