Question

Does DO provide an HSM (Hardware Security Module) for storing certificates

I know that a similar question was asked over a year ago, but am hoping that maybe things have changed. Our apps need to do document signing, which requires a certificate issued by a CA. I have spoken with Entrust and Sectigo about their services, and both require that the cert be stored in an HSM. This is to meet a FIPS requirement which is necessary to be a member of the Adobe Approved Trust List. AWS, Azure, and Google all offer HSM as part of their cloud hosting services. I would like to stay with Digital Ocean, but PDF document signing will eventually be an important component of our applications.

Hey @robertbecker,

I don’t believe that there is such a managed service as of the time being.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
