Cryptographic Module Validation Program CMVP

Certificate #2486


Module Name
Luna® Backup HSM Cryptographic Module
FIPS 140-2
 Historical Reason
186-2 transition
Overall Level
When operated in FIPS mode and initialized to Overall Level 3 per Security Policy
Security Level Exceptions
  • Mitigation of Other Attacks: N/A
Module Type
Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The Luna® Backup HSM Hardware Security Module (HSM) provides the same level of security as the Luna® SA and Luna® PCI-E HSMs in a convenient, small, low-cost form factor. The Luna Backup HSM ensures that sensitive cryptographic material remains strongly protected in hardware even when not being used. One can easily back up and duplicate keys securely to the Luna Backup HSM for safekeeping in case of emergency, failure or disaster.
