Oracle Internet Directory: Identity Access Management and SafeNet Enterprise HSM
Oracle Internet Directory, the Web server component for Oracle Fusion Middleware, is a general purpose directory service that enables fast retrieval and centralized management of information about dispersed users and network resources. It combines Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Version 3 with the high performance, scalability, robustness, and availability of an Oracle database. Enabling SSL in Oracle Internet Directory ensures that data has not been modified, deleted, or replayed during transmission.
SafeNet Enterprise HSMs integrate with the Oracle Internet Directory Server to provide significant performance improvements by off-loading cryptographic operations from the server to the HSM. The SafeNet Enterprise HSMs also provide the highest level of security assurance by protecting and managing the server’s high value SSL private key within a FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified hardware security module.
With the SafeNet Enterprise HSM, Oracle Internet Directory Server users get the benefits of centralized secure storage and full lifecycle management of the private keys, improved server performance by offloading the cryptographic processing, and failover support.
