Network Trust Links

Network Trust Links (NTL) are secure, authenticated network connections between the Luna SA and Clients. NTLs use two-way digital certificate authentication and SSL data encryption to protect sensitive data as it is transmitted between HSM Partitions on the Luna SA and Clients.

The Luna SA can support up to 800 simultaneous NTL connections. If you are using a large number of links, it is best to stagger their starts, to avoid timeout. .
