Luna Backup HSM Solutions

Luna Backup HSM Solutions

Luna Backup HSM Solutions Thales offers flexible options to help maintain business continuity, with offline backup HSM and cloud backup HSM solutions that follow security best practices by maintaining keys in hardware throughout their lifecycle, protecting those keys even when not in use and reducing the attack surface.

Luna HSM Features & Benefits:

Defense in Depth: Keys in Hardware

Cryptography is only as strong as the security afforded to your cryptographic keys. Luna HSMs are designed with the highest key security in mind.

With our unique keys-in-hardware approach, cryptographic keys are securely isolated inside the tamper-resistant hardware of the HSM. Applications communicate with the keys stored in the Luna HSM via a client – but keys never leave the HSM.

Flexibility for the Next Generation of PKI

With an unparalleled combination of features—including central key and policy management, robust encryption support, flexible integration, and more – Luna Hardware Security Modules enable organizations to guard against evolving threats and capitalize on the emerging opportunities presented in technological advances.

FIPS 140, Common Criteria and eIDAS Validation

Achieving FIPS Validation and Common Criteria Certification can be a lengthy process for each product certified. As our sole focus is security, we make third-party certifications a priority. Our team has years of experience in designing products that adhere to FIPS, Common Criteria, and many other 3rd party product security assurance schemes. Our Luna HSMs are accredited as follows:

Thales Luna HSM 7 (PCIe and Network) Security Certifications:

  • FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validated – Password and Multi-Factor (PED)
  • FIPS 140-3 Level 3 Validated – Password and Multi-Factor (PED)
  • Common Criteria EAL4+ (AVA_VAN.5 and ALC_FLR.2) Certified against the Protection Profile EN 419 221-5
  • Listed as Qualified Signature or Seal Creation Device (QSCD for either remote or local signing as part of an eIDAS compliant deployment)
  • NIST SP 800-90 A/B/C Certified
  • AIS 20/31 Compliant to DRG.4
  • Singapore NITES Certified
  • Brazil INMETRO Approved (Formerly ITI)
  • NATO Approved for Use up to Restricted

Secure Remote Management and Activation

Today, organizations depend on IT infrastructure that is spread across the globe. Activating, managing and administering HSMs across many decentralized data centers could be a time consuming and costly process.

With Thales’s two-factor authenticated Remote PIN Entry Device (PED), Luna HSMs can be securely managed and administered remotely. Luna HSMs also benefit from secure transport mode, a feature which allows HSMs to be placed in a locked state to ensure key material is secure and untampered as it travels to a data center or remote office.

Flexible Deployment Options

Luna HSMs can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud, as a service, or across multiple environments to create a purpose-built hybrid HSM solution ensuring the:

  • Flexibility to meet your business and compliance needs securely and efficiently;
  • Ability to move keys freely for cloning, backup and scaling between environments as well as migrate environments in the future;
  • Key material can be shared automatically across all environments.
