  • Overview

    The Luna G5 for Government is a small form factor HSM that is widely used by government agencies for data, applications and digital identities to reduce risk and ensure regulatory compliance.  Derived from industry-leading technology, the FIPS 140-2 certified Luna G5 for Government is manufactured, sold, and supported exclusively by SafeNet Assured Technologies.

    Luna G5 for Government delivers industry leading key management in a small and portable form factor. All key material is maintained exclusively within the confines of the hardware. The small form-factor and offline key storage capability sets the product apart, making it especially attractive to customers with business critical keys that need to physically detach and store the HSM in a secure offline environment.

    Tamper Recovery Role

    The Luna G5 for Government features sophisticated tamper detection and response circuitry to automatically zeroize internal keys in the event of an attempted attack on the HSM. Balancing this extreme security posture with end user ease of use concerns, the Luna G5 for Government includes a capability for properly authenticated security officers to recover from an inadvertent tamper event and quickly put the HSM back into its usable state without the loss of any keys or sensitive data.

    Secure Transport Mode

    The G5 tamper response circuits have also allowed the introduction of a secure transport mode. Security Officers use the device’s tamper recovery role keys to cryptographically lock down the HSM prior to transporting the device.

    Cryptographic Capabilities

    Luna G5  for Government supports a broad range of asymmetric key encryption and key exchange capabilities, as well as support for all standard symmetric encryption algorithms. It also supports all standard hashing algorithms and message authentication codes (MAC). The Luna G5 for Government also supports ECC key pairs for use in Suite B applications that require a permanent, factory generated digital ID.
