Forefront Unified Access Gateway: SSL Key Storage and SafeNet Enterprise HSM

Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG) provides secure remote access to corporate networks for employees, partners, and customers. UAG uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL), Virtual Private Network (VPN), Web application firewalls, and secure endpoint management to securely deliver web-based enterprise applications. Using UAG, enterprise applications are securely available to authorized users from anywhere.

Gemalto's SafeNet Enterprise (formerly Luna SA) HSM integrates to store the certificates and encryption keys at the heart of UAG’s SSL transactions. With SafeNet Enterprise HSM as the root of trust, organizations can securely send data and deliver applications through protected SSL tunnels. Data is encrypted before it travels and the keys necessary to decrypt it never leave the hardware appliance thus eliminating the possibility that data will be intercepted while in cleartext.
