Description
The Sun Cryptographic Accelerator 6000 (SCA-6000) is a high performance hardware security module for Sun platforms (SPARC, x86, x64). It is a low-profile, short PCI-E (X8) card consisting of on-board cryptographic acceleration hardware and a secure cryptographic key store. SCA-6000 supports remote management functions. It has serial and USB ports for local administration. It enhances platform performance by off-loading compute intensive cryptographic calculations by accelerating both IPsec and SSL processing, and by performing many financial service functions. Supported on Linux and Solaris-10
