Full Title

Hardware Protection offered by Hardware Security Modules (HSM see FIPS 140) or management chips.



When hardware contains software, and particularly when it contains firmware, it no longer has the same level of protection that a purely hardware solution offers. For example the Apple T2 chip has been hacked and cannot be fixed in the field.[1]
