New Features and Enhancements

Luna Network HSM 7.3.0 includes the following new features and enhancements:

Appliance Re-Image

Luna Network HSM 7.3 allows you to re-image the appliance to a pre-installed baseline version. This procedure formats the Luna Network HSM file system, zeroizes the HSM, erases the appliance configuration, and resets the appliance software to Luna 7.2 and the HSM firmware to version 7.0.3. This capability is useful if you are re-purposing an HSM for a project that has standardized on an earlier software/firmware configuration, or if you need to format the appliance completely and remove all trace of its prior configuration (requires firmware 7.3.0). See Re-Imaging the Appliance to Factory Baseline.

This feature also requires Luna HSM Firmware 7.3.0.

Partition Utilization Metrics

Luna Network HSM 7.3 allows the HSM SO to access utilization records for all partitions on the HSM. This information is restricted to operation counts, and shows which partitions are using the HSM's resources. Information about which keys are being used for which operation is still restricted to the Auditor. See Partition Utilization Metrics.

This feature also requires Luna HSM Firmware 7.3.0.

Release 7.3.0 Advisory Notes

This section highlights important issues you should be aware of before deploying appliance software 7.3.0.

Luna 7.3.x Appliance Software Does Not Support 10G Optical Ethernet

The Luna Network HSM with 10G optical ethernet capability is not supported by the Luna 7.3.x appliance software. If you have a 10G-ready appliance, update appliance software to version 7.4 or higher only.

CAUTION!   Do not update the 10G appliance to Luna 7.3.x.

The port mapping will revert to the 1G configuration and you will lose 10G support. The appliance might require RMA to fix the port mapping.

NTP Server May Take Slightly Longer to Connect/Disconnect After Updating to Luna 7.3.x or newer

If you are using NTP, then after you update to Luna 7.3.x you might find that the Luna Network HSM appliance takes longer to synchronize with the NTP server.

To reduce the synchronization time, specify the -iburst option when adding an NTP server:

lunash:> sysconf ntp addserver <hostname/IP> -iburst

This causes the server to more rapidly synchronize when first connecting/reconnecting.
