DNSSEC: Key Management with Luna SA

DNSSEC, a suite of IETF specifications, is designed to secure certain kinds of DNS information. It’s essential that private DNSSEC keys are kept secure. If the private key were to be compromised, a rogue DNS server could gain access. To prevent such a compromise, SafeNet’s Luna SA hardware security module  (HSM) protects the generation and storing of private keys. In additional SafeNet Luna SA supports key rollover functions since DNSSEC keys don’t have permanent longevity.
