Luna Network HSM

Thales Luna Network HSM

Secure your sensitive data and critical applications by storing, protecting and managing your cryptographic keys in Thales Luna Network Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) – high-assurance, tamper-resistant, network-attached appliances offering market-leading performance.

Easily integrate these network-attached HSMs into a wide range of applications to accelerate cryptographic operations, secure the crypto key lifecycle, and act as a root of trust for your entire crypto infrastructure.

What you need to know:
Superior Performance:
• Meet your high throughput requirements with over 20,000 ECC
and 10,000 RSA operations 20,000 ECC and 10,000 RSA
operations per second for high performance use cases
• Lower latency for improved efficiency



Approach to Key Security: Keys in Hardware

Protect the entire lifecycle of your keys within the FIPS 140-2 validated confines of the Thales Luna Network HSM. Our unique approach to protecting cryptographic keys in hardware positions our appliances as the most trusted general purpose HSMs on the market. Unlike other methods of key storage which move keys outside of the HSM into a “trusted layer,” the keys-in-hardware approach ensures that your keys always benefit from both physical and logical protections of the Thales Luna Network HSM.

  • Market-Leading Performance – Built for Speed

Faster than other HSMs on the market, Thales Luna Network HSM 7 is ideally suited for use cases that require high performance such as the protection of SSL/TLS keys and high volume code signing.

  • Scalable Security for Virtual and Cloud Environments

Separate Thales Luna Network HSMs into up to 100 cryptographically isolated partitions, with each partition acting as if it was an independent HSM. A single HSM can act as the root of trust that protects the cryptographic key lifecycle of hundreds of independent applications, providing you with a tremendous amount of scalability and flexibility.

Keys and partitions are cryptographically separated from each other, enabling Enterprises and Service Providers to leverage the same hardware for multiple tenants and appliances.

  • Ease of Use – Centralized Crypto Resources

Simplify the administration of multiple HSMs using Thales Crypto Command Center to provide on-demand provisioning and monitoring of crypto resources.

  • The De Facto Standard for the Cloud

As the de facto standard in the cloud, Thales Luna Network HSMs are deployed in more public cloud environments than any other HSM. Scale to meet your cryptographic performance requirements regardless of the environment be it on-premises, private, public, or hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
