New Features and Enhancements

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

Appliance Re-Image

Luna Appliance Software 7.3.0 allows you to re-image the appliance to a pre-installed baseline version. This procedure formats the Luna Network HSM 7 file system, zeroizes the HSM, erases the appliance configuration, and resets the appliance software to Luna Appliance Software 7.2.0 and the HSM firmware to Luna HSM Firmware 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 minimum Luna HSM Firmware 7.3.0). See Re-Imaging the Appliance to Baseline Software/Firmware Versions.

This feature also requires Luna Appliance Software 7.3.0.

Partition Utilization Metrics

Luna Appliance Software 7.3.0 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 Appliance Software 7.3.0.

BIP32 Algorithm

Luna HSM Firmware 7.3.0 includes new mechanisms that use the BIP32 cryptographic algorithm. This allows Luna Network HSM 7 to support applications that use Hierarchical Deterministic Wallets, used in Bitcoin and blockchain transactions.

Valid Update Paths

You can update the Luna HSM firmware to version 7.3.0 from the following previous versions:
