Oracle SSL Authentication: Network Access and SafeNet Enterprise HSM


Oracle Advanced Security supports authentication by using digital certificates over SSL in addition to the native encryption and data integrity capabilities of these protocols. By using Oracle SSL authentication to secure communications between clients and servers, organizations can use SSL to encrypt the connection between clients and servers, and authenticate any client or server, such as Oracle Application Server 10g, to any Oracle database server that is configured to communicate over SSL.

SafeNet Enterprise (formerly Luna SA) HSMs integrate with Oracle SSL Authentication to provide significant performance improvements by off-loading cryptographic operations from the server to the HSM. In addition, SafeNet Enterprise HSMs provide the highest assurance available by protecting and managing the server’s high value SSL private key within a FIPS 140-2 Level 3-certified hardware security module.
