November 6, 2018 Abingdon, MD: SafeNet Assured Technologies, LLC, a trusted, U.S. based source for cyber security solutions, today announced that its Luna Hardware Security Modules for Government received Ready Approval to integrate with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology from Entrust Datacard — a leading provider of trusted identity and secure issuance technology solutions. This integration will enhance security of Entrust Datacard PKI deployments.
SafeNet Assured Technologies’ (SafeNet AT) Luna Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) for Government now integrate with Entrust Datacard’s Entrust Authority Security Manager. Entrust Authority Security Manager provides easy management of the digital keys and certificates that secure user and device identities in an X.509 PKI. Deployed at the server-level, it enables trusted identity, digital signatures, and encryption across a wide variety of enterprise applications. Critical to the security of the entire PKI is the protection of the private keys in the embedded Certificate Authority hierarchy. With SafeNet AT’s Luna HSMs for Government, private keys are protected with a dedicated appliance validated to FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and 3.
SafeNet AT Luna HSMs for Government provide reliable protection for transactions, identities, and applications by securing cryptographic keys and provisioning encryption, decryption, authentication, and digital signing services. SafeNet AT HSMs provide the highest-performing, most secure, and easiest-to-integrate application and transaction security solution for government agencies. Developed for U.S. Government use, Luna HSMs for Government are manufactured, sold, and supported in the U.S. exclusively by SafeNet AT.
