Thales Luna PCIe HSM

Thales Luna PCIe Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) can be embedded directly in an appliance or application server for an easy-to-integrate and cost-efficient solution for cryptographic acceleration and security.  The high-security hardware design of Thales Luna PCIe HSM ensures the integrity and protection of encryption keys throughout their life cycle.

All digital signing and verification operations are performed within the HSM to increase performance and maintain security.

Thales Luna PCIe HSM at a Glance:

Meet Your Compliance Needs

Meet your compliance needs by leveraging our certified Thales Luna PCIe HSMs. As Gemalto’s sole focus is security, we make third-party certifications a priority.

Overcome Resource Constraints

As the need to provide security for resource constrained devices (smart phones, tablets, smart meters) grows, vendors must be able to provide solutions that leverage ECC algorithms. ECC algorithms offer high key strength, at a greatly reduced key length when compared to RSA keys.

Thales Luna PCIe HSM includes a wide range of hardware accelerated ECC algorithms, including custom curves, that can be used in the development of solutions.

Operational Cost Savings

Thales Luna PCIe HSM benefits from a robust and forward thinking feature set. These features – including remote management, secure transport, and remote backup – will greatly reduce the management and operational costs of a deployment that utilizes this HSM.
