Thales TCT is pleased to announce the release of Luna Credential System (LCS) 2.0. This first-of-its-kind, patent-pending solution introduces a new approach to multi-factor authentication by maintaining user credentials in a centralized hardware device that is securely accessible by endpoints in a distributed network. It unites the familiarity of certificate-based authentication with the security of a FIPS 140-2 certified hardware security module (HSM). 

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Cryptographic Authentication

OMB Memo M-19-17 outlines a policy that requires all software robots to have individual digital identities and credentials managed in the same fashion as traditional user identities for authority to operate in U.S. Federal production systems. Software robots can utilize multi-factor login capabilities with a centralized, hardware security module-based authentication system such as LCS. 

LCS 2.0 now integrates with UiPath’s enterprise RPA solution to provide hardware-protected PKI credentials for UiPath’s unattended software robots. Unattended software robots act autonomously in place of a user or operator leveraging its own security credentials. This critical integration will enable UiPath’s unattended software robots to operate in production systems across the federal government. 

New Features

In addition to the UiPath integration, LCS 2.0 also includes new features including:

  • Credential HSM with PED authentication (FIPS Level 3) 
  • Support larger number of LCS Clients and Credential Bins (up to 200 per Credential HSM)  
  • Use case expansion including support for document signing, email signing, additional certificate authorities, and RPA solutions  
  • Luna Vault plugin (preview) for UiPath Orchestrator
