SafeNet Luna PCI-E

Luna PCI-E can be embedded directly in an appliance or application server for an easy-to-integrate and cost-efficient solution for cryptographic acceleration and security. The high-security hardware design of Luna PCI-E ensures the integrity and protection of encryption keys throughout their life cycle. All digital signing and verification operations are performed within the hardware security module (HSM) to increase performance and maintain security.

Available in Two Performance Models

Luna PCI-E is available in two performance models: Luna PCI-E 7000 and Luna PCI-E 1700.

Luna PCI-E 7000 is a high performance HSM capable of best in class performance across a breadth of algorithms including ECC, RSA, and symmetric transactions.
The Luna PCI-E 1700 variant, is capable of 1700 RSA 1024-bit transactions per second.

Algorithm Luna PCI-E 1700 Model Luna PCI-E 7000 Model
RSA-1024 1,700 7,000
RSA-2048 350 1,200
ECC P256 500 2,000
ECIES 200 300
AES-GCM 3700 3700
