The following sections cover integration with Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) and external databases.

HSM Integration

The EJBCA and SignServer Container Set support integration with various Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) through model-specific container images. The HSM integration can be achieved using two primary architectural approaches: PKCS#11 via a separate sidecar container, or through the REST API. For information on HSM integration and configuration examples, see HSM Integration.

Database Integration

For data persistence, all production deployments are advised to use an external database. Databases are deployed separately, and the Helm chart is configured with the necessary database credentials. For information on connecting to an external database, with examples for different database systems, see Database Integration.

For more information on integrating with HSMs and external databases, see the following sections:
