Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies Luna T-Series Hardware Security Modules Receive FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validation

April 19, 2021

Validation Signifies that the Luna T-Series Hardware Security Modules Meet NIST’s Highest Level of Security Standards 

April 19, 2021

Thales Trusted Cyber Technologies (TCT), a trusted, U.S. based source for cyber security solutions, today announced that its Luna T-Series Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) have received Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Level 3 validation from the National Institution of Standards and Technology (NIST). 

Designated in FIPS 140-2 validation certificate number 3898 as the Luna T7 Cryptographic Module, the Luna T7 is included in the following Thales TCT products:

Luna T-Series HSMs are the choice for government agencies when storing, protecting and managing cryptographic keys used to secure sensitive data and critical applications. Meeting government mandates for U.S. Supply Chain, the high-assurance, tamper-resistant Luna T-Series HSMs are designed, developed, manufactured, sold, and supported in the United States.

Industry-Leading Performance & Security

Luna T-Series HSMs offer industry-leading cryptographic performance and security optimized for government mandated algorithms and key lengths. Thales TCT’s keys-in-hardware approach protects the entire life-cycle of keys within the FIPS 140-2 validated confines of the HSM.

Quantum Enhanced Keys

By embedding a quantum random number generator (QRNG) chip within the Luna T7 Crypto Module, Thales TCT is offering the industry’s first FIPS 140-2 compliant HSM capable of generating quantum enhanced keys. Using principles of quantum physics, the QRNG chip produces high quality entropy which is the basis for all random numbers and cryptographic keys generated by the HSM.  With a choice of operating the HSM in FIPS-approved mode using either the embedded, classic physical RNG or the embedded quantum RNG, customers can dynamically change between classical key generation and quantum enhanced keys as threats emerge over time.

Available Now

The FIPS-validated Luna T-Series HSM is available for new deployments today. Organizations who have already deployed Luna T-Series HSMs can now easily perform an in-field upgrade to the latest FIPS-validated firmware. Multiple migration solutions are available to organizations that have the widely deployed Luna SA for Government generation HSMs and need to modernization to the high performance, FIPS-validated Luna T-Series HSMs. Contact Thales TCT customer support for more information on HSM migration and upgrades.
