Description
The SCA-6000 is a high performance hardware security module for Sun SPARC, x86, x64 platforms in a lowprofile, short PCI-E (X8) card. Supported on Linux and Solaris-10, it provides on-board cryptographic acceleration hardware and key store. It supports remote management with serial and USB ports for local administration. It enhances performance by off-loading compute intensive cryptographic calculations, accelerating IPsec and SSL processing and performs many financial service functions. The SCA6000 performs primary cryptographic functions for the Sun KMS 2.X Key Management System.
