Gemalto is pleased to announce that SafeNet KeySecure version 8.8.0 is now available for the following physical appliances:
- SafeNet KeySecure k460 (R320 and R330 chassis)

Virtual deployments are also available through SafeNet Virtual KeySecure on AWS and VMware.
Below are new feature enhancements available in the SafeNet KeySecure 8.8.0 release:
Support for Luna SA version 6.3.X: Virtual SafeNet KeySecure now supports Luna SA HSM version 5.4.7 and 6.3.0.
Schedule Key Rotation: You can now select “Custom” as a Schedule Period in the Scheduled Key Rotation settings of the Management Console. You can also customize the key rotation schedule from 0 to 365 days.
Support for ECIES Algorithm: SafeNet KeySecure now supports ECIES (Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme) algorithm. Using this algorithm you can perform encrypt/decrypt operations using the EC keys.
Key Checksum Value (KCV) Support: Allows customers to compare symmetric keys without knowing their actual values (useful when exporting keys outside the SafeNet KeySecure appliance to be used on midrange computing platforms).
HMAC based Key Derivation (HKDF): Enables customers to take some source of initial keying material and derive from it one or more cryptographically strong secret keys.
AES Key Wrap: SafeNet KeySecure now supports wrapping of the existing AES-256/AES-128 bit symmetric keys from another AES-256/AES-128 symmetric keys.
- Last login information displayed on Home tab (improves usage auditability)
- Provide banner display (a way to inform SafeNet KeySecure administrators in remote locations of maintenance or other administrative plans/issues)
- Use AES-256 key from SafeNet KeySecure appliance to encrypt the backup (vs. password based encryption)
