SafeNet HSM Features & Benefits:

Green Cryptographic Key Icon

Cryptography is only as strong as the security afforded to your cryptographic keys. SafeNet 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 HSM via a client – but keys never leave the HSM.

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

Achieving FIPS 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 140-2 and Common Criteria.  Our SafeNet HSMs are certified to FIPS 140-2 (Level 2 and 3) and Common Criteria EAL 4+. as follows:

SafeNet Luna HSM 7

    • SafeNet Luna HSM 7 (PCIe and Network) FIPS
    • SafeNet Luna HSM (PCIe and Network) – remote Qualified Electronic Signature resp. Seal Creation Device (QSCD) – Certificate

SafeNet Luna HSM 6

    • SafeNet Luna HSM 6 (PCIe and Network) 140-2 Level 2 NIST Certificate #3208
    • SafeNet Luna HSM 6 (PCIe and Network) 140-2 Level 3 NIST Certificate #3268
    • SafeNet Luna HSM 6 (PCI-E Cryptographic Module 6.10.9 when embedded within a SafeNet Luna Network HSM 6) – OCSI QSigCD) and QSealCD for remote digital signature use cases.
    • Certificate of Attestation of Conformity
    • SafeNet Luna HSM 6 (PCI-E Cryptographic Module 6.10.9 when embedded within a SafeNet Luna Network HSM 5/6) – QsigCD and QSealCD for remote digital signature use cases
    • EU Commission Published List of QSCD approved devices

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 Gemalto’s two-factor authenticated Remote PIN Entry Device (PED), SafeNet HSMs can be securely managed and administered remotely. SafeNet 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 un-tampered as it travels to a data center or remote office.

SafeNet Crypto Command Center is an innovative provisioning tool that enables organizations to establish their own internal HSM-as-a-Service offering.

Crypto Command Center allows a centralized IT team to establish a pool of pre-configured HSM resources, and provide those resources to the teams that need them via an on-demand catalog of resources. Crypto Command Center represents a dramatic reduction in the time required to stand-up and manage HSM resources.
