nShield Microsoft Azure RMS On Premise Windows Server 2012 Integration Guide
This guide describes how to use nCipher nShield HSMs to generate cryptographic keys—known as tenant keys—for use by Microsoft Rights Management services within Windows Azure (Windows Azure RMS).
The guide provides step-by-step instructions on generating tenant keys on-premises and transferring the keys to cloud-based nCipher nShield HSMs hosted by Microsoft.
The key generation and transfer process is known as RMS Bring Your Own Key (BYOK). nCipher offers a BYOK deployment package, described here. A video illustrating how nCipher and Microsoft’s BYOK works can be found here.
