VMware Cloud Director Key Management with Thales CipherTrust Manager

Managing encryption keys and storing them securely is the cornerstone to meeting data security and sovereignty requirements. This is because encryption keys (also called cryptographic keys) are the strings of bits generated to encode and decode data. Whoever owns and manages the keys, therefore also ultimately owns the data. This is why organizations must prove they fully manage and control their encryption keys to be compliant.

VMware Tanzu Application Service: Key Management with Thales Luna Network HSMs

VMware Tanzu Application Service (TAS) integrates with Thales Luna Network HSMs to provide high assurance cryptographic key protection for applications in VMware Tanzu environments. With Thales Network HSMs, organizations protect valuable keys and certificates throughout their entire lifecycle externally on a centralized platform in accordance with such compliance obligations as PCI DSS, GDPR, CCPA, NY DFS, and HIPAA. Luna Network HSMs additionally let developers accelerate cryptographic operations in their applications, and allow security professionals to audit a single point for all of their application’s cryptographic keys.

Developers can use the TAS Java Build pack to seamlessly deploy Luna Network HSMs, leaving only configuration to the application as the final step, ultimately making the addition of security straightforward and painless. Thales’ keys-in-hardware approach keeps keys within the FIPS 140-2 validated confines of the hardware appliance so they always benefit from both the appliance’s physical and logical protections. Ease-of-use aside, fundamentally, HSMs prevent unwanted access to cryptographic keys - even by third-party cloud infrastructure providers - irrespective of where applications are deployed.

VMware Tanzu Application Service Credhub with Thales Luna Network HSMs

Tanzu Application Service (TAS) Credhub integrates with Thales Luna Network HSMs to secure the credentials and secrets underpinning the entire application development platform. TAS Credhub collects these credentials in a centralized manager to ease platform administration. Unfortunately, this same centralization makes it an attractive target for privileged insiders and other unauthorized users seeking access to often sensitive regulated data. To address best-practice security, and meet their compliance obligations organizations can use Luna Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) to isolate and secure these Credhub credentials, keep platform data safe, and address a customer’s relevant compliance requirements. Organizations use Luna HSMs to attain the high assurance, hardware security needed to protect their cloud services and applications running on TAS.
