IBM Global Security Kit (GSKit) Encryption Libraries: Encryption Key Storage with SafeNet Enterprise HSM
provides libraries and utilities for SSL communication, enabling organizations
to add encryption protection to over 200 IBM applications, including the IBM
WebSphere Suite and IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM). Businesses stand to
lose substantially – both in revenue and reputation – when there is a breach of
online channels they use for communication, transactions, and applications. SSL
encryption secures these web based communications and services. SafeNet Enterprise HSM (formerly Luna SA) stores
SSL certificates in a tamper-proof hardware security module to serve as a
reliable root of trust for network cryptographic operations.
Additionally, SafeNet Enterprise HSM offloads SSL operations from general-use servers, stores them within the
hardware appliance for added security, and improves server performance. It can
also provide true random number generation and streamline key administration by
performing both symmetric and asymmetric key functions on a single platform.
Together, IBM and Gemalto optimize the security and performance of online
communications and transactions.
