Parsec is the Platform AbstRaction for SECurity, an open-source initiative to provide a common API to hardware security and cryptographic services in a platform-agnostic way. This abstraction layer keeps workloads decoupled from physical platform details, enabling cloud-native delivery flows within the data center and at the edge.
A common API that is truly agnostic and based on modern cryptographic principles
Security as a microservice, brokering access to the hardware and providing isolated key stores in a multi-tenant environment
A client library ecosystem that brings the API to the fingertips of developers in any programming language: easy to consume, hard to get wrong
An open-source project inviting contributions to enhance the ecosystem both within the service and among its client libraries
Note: Arm contributes to Parsec as part of Project Cassini.
