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.
