Sneak Preview: HSM Data Encryption with SafeNet
We’re working with SafeNet, an industry leader in data protection, to bring hardware data encryption to Secret Server. We’re adding support for SafeNet’s Hardware Security Modules, or HSMs.
SafeNet’s Luna PCI HSM (pictured) is FIPS 140-2 Level 2 and 3 compliant, bringing a new level of data protection to your enterprise.
When Secret Server is configured to use SafeNet’s HSM, Secret Server will no longer store the encryption key on the server or perform the actual encryption and decryption. Instead, the encryption key is stored inside the device, and the device itself performs the encryption and decryption. Secret Server at no point is aware of the keys being used to encrypt or decrypt data. All the encryption and decryption stays in the hardware.
When an HSM is available, Secret Server will allow selecting the encryption key storage location during installation.
SafeNet’s HSM also allows redundant configuration of two or more HSMs to ensure zero loss of data and Secret Server is always available.
We are pleased to be adding this capability to Secret Server and have enjoyed working with the smart folks over at SafeNet. The SafeNet HSM support will be available in the next release of Secret Server.
