SafeNet Partners with Oracle to Provide Hardware Security for Enterprise Grid Computing

Monday 3 May 2004 09:35 CET | News

SafeNet Luna SA, a Network-attached Hardware Security Module (HSM), supports Oracle Database 10g to provide hardware security and SSL acceleration for enterprise grid computing.

Grid computing reduces IT costs and management time by clustering servers together to act as a single large computer, shifting resources dynamically between applications. Oracle Grid Computing enables systems of interconnected servers, storage, and software to adapt to the exact needs of ones business, resulting in improved IT resource utilization. Grid computing is more secure than multiple disparate servers because uniform security procedures are applied to each machine in the system and the grid will only function if each servers credentials are verified. Integrating the Luna SA hardware security module with Oracle Database 10g protects the encryption keys that are used to secure and verify each machines credentials. SafeNets Luna SA is the first network HSM that provides shared encryption services over a TCP/IP network, dramatically lowering the total cost of deployment and ownership. The network-sharable Luna SA maintains unparalleled levels of security for sensitive encryption data, and has been validated to stringent FIPS 140-2, Level 3 standards. The Luna SA also improves performance with SSL acceleration and can be configured for up to 3,600 1024-bit RSA signings per second. Additionally, the Luna SA can be easily partitioned into multiple virtual HSMs to support independent applications.
