HPE Unveils FIPS-Validated Format-Preserving Encryption Tool

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 13, 2017 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced that HPE SecureData has achieved the industry’s first Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 validation of Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE). HPE SecureData with Hyper FPE delivers a NIST-standardized method of protecting data at-rest, in-motion, and in-use, and maintains the format, meaning, value and logic in the data. Now, government agencies and private contractors serving government customers, can leverage the same powerful and proven technology that has transformed cybersecurity in the private sector.

A major challenge faced by federal agencies, including those attacked by nation state adversaries, is the dependency on legacy applications and platforms with limited native data security options. HPE SecureData helps build data security into both new and legacy applications, de-identifying high-value data classes; for example, protecting classified information, or eliminating reliance on using Social Security Numbers for business processes. Security assurance is increased, while unleashing the utility of data for secure adoption of big data analytics such as Hadoop and other new applications and solutions.

“Government agencies set the high bar for protecting both their sensitive data and citizen data across multiple platforms and applications, both legacy and modern,” said Albert Biketi, vice president and general manager, HPE Security – Data Security at Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “With the HPE SecureData FIPS validation, government agencies and contractors can now use a standardized data security product with extensive enterprise deployments, neutralizing data breaches while liberating analytics and innovation.”

HPE SecureData has the world’s first FIPS-validated AES-FF1 encryption configuration option to operate in strict FIPS mode. This enables public sector customers to take advantage of true FIPS-validated and approved cryptography when building compliance programs for regulations such as the Cybersecurity Act of 2015 data security requirements, DFARS CUI, and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

HPE SecureData with Hyper FPE has the ability to “de-identify” virtually unlimited data types, from sensitive personally identifiable information (PII), to IDs, health information or classified data, rendering it useless to attackers in the event of a security breach. This allows government agencies to securely leverage the de-identified data for big-data analytics, and collaborate with shared data between other agencies or contractors. It also provides accelerated encryption speeds that enable government agencies to adopt new technologies, such as the cloud or Hadoop or invest in innovations such as IoT, all while lowering the risk of disclosing sensitive personal data or compromising high value data.

Full integration with HPE Atalla HSM

HPE SecureData is fully integrated with HPE Atalla HSM, a hardware appliance validated to FIPS 140-2 Level 3, offering organizations greater physical and logical data protection. HPE Atalla HSM stores and manages root keys, with centralized configuration and security policy enforcement, making it simple for customers to take a holistic approach to managing data protection.

Availability

HPE SecureData with FIPS validation is currently available globally, and delivers data security for governance, risk and compliance across public and private sector mission-critical systems for cloud, big data, IoT, payments, mobile data capture, and applications.

Enterprise Vulnerabilities
From DHS/US-CERT's National Vulnerability Database
CVE-2018-17332
PUBLISHED: 2018-09-22
An issue was discovered in libsvg2 through 2012-10-19. The svgGetNextPathField function in svg_string.c returns its input pointer in certain circumstances, which might result in a memory leak caused by wasteful malloc calls.
CVE-2018-17333
PUBLISHED: 2018-09-22
An issue was discovered in libsvg2 through 2012-10-19. A stack-based buffer overflow in svgStringToLength in svg_types.c allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact because sscanf is misused.
CVE-2018-17334
PUBLISHED: 2018-09-22
An issue was discovered in libsvg2 through 2012-10-19. A stack-based buffer overflow in the svgGetNextPathField function in svg_string.c allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact because a strncpy copy limit is miscalculated.
CVE-2018-17336
PUBLISHED: 2018-09-22
UDisks 2.8.0 has a format string vulnerability in udisks_log in udiskslogging.c, allowing attackers to obtain sensitive information (stack contents), cause a denial of service (memory corruption), or possibly have unspecified other impact via a malformed filesystem label, as demonstrated by %d or %n...
CVE-2018-17321
PUBLISHED: 2018-09-22
An issue was discovered in SeaCMS 6.64. XSS exists in admin_datarelate.php via the time or maxHit parameter in a dorandomset action.
