Worldwide Oracle customers selecting TrustWay HSM will benefit from the latest security features including centralized encryption key management and storage in the encryption card of TrustWay box Common Criteria EAL4+ validated - encryption card using RSA 4096 bits or Elliptic Curve Cryptography 256 bits algorithms.
Using Oracle Advanced Security, data is transparently encrypted and decrypted within the Oracle Database without any change to existing applications.
"Organisations rely on Oracle Advanced Security for Oracle Database 11g to safeguard valuable information, help address regulatory requirements and mitigate risks", stated Vipin Samar, Database Security Product Development vice-president, Oracle. "With widespread deployment of Transparent Data Encryption, centralized management of the database master encryption keys becomes essential."
"Integration with TrustWay HSM allows our security sensitive customers, government, critical infrastructure operators, and enterprises, to benefit from validated assurance encryption key management. It will provide organisations using Oracle Advanced Security with Oracle Database 11g to help meet today and tomorrow's data threats and compliance mandates", stated Max Tu Ba, TrustWay Product Line Manager.
TrustWay-powered Oracle Database 11g solution is most commonly found in a number of repository management scenarios like the following:
Governmental entities such as defence, interior, finance, health departments deploy encryption and key management as part of stringent internal security policies, and Common Criteria to EAL4+ level compliance is a requirement for these implementations. TrustWay HSM is validated to this level and helps protect PII, personally identifiable information, within public sector organisations.
Secure key management and encryption are the most challenging parts of data protection and compliance. The use of an HSM as a trusted platform in which keys can be securely created, used, managed and stored helps comply with these mandates.
Oracle Transparent Data Encryption is now supported by the TrustWay HSM to provide centralized key management. As critical policy enforcement points, TrustWay HSM can be used to establish strong authentication rules for administrators and dual control mechanisms for establishing shared responsibilities.
TrustWay provides a virtually seamless solution to manage the creation, storage, rotation (re-keying) of master encryption keys used by Oracle Transparent Data Encryption. This integration solves the management issues of centrally storing master encryption keys securely.
Today's announcement is one of the many examples of Bull's long standing relationship with Oracle. Bull is a Platinum level member of the Oracle Partner Network (OPN). The two companies have a long track record of common solutions to offer customers enabling technologies, and as of now for securing mission-critical information in ways that are virtually seamless with customers' operations.
