Description
The ICSF PKCS #11 module consists of software-based cryptographic algorithms, as well as symmetric and hashing algorithms provided by the CP Assist for Cryptographic Function (CPACF) and RSA Hardware clear key modular math cryptography provided through the Crypto Express3 card (CEX3A). The RSA hardware support is accessed through auxiliary module CSFINPVT which acts as a pipe between ICSF PKCS #11 and the cryptographic cards.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • (single-user mode)
  • IBM System z10® Enterprise Class (z10 EC) with CP Assist for Cryptographic Functions DES/TDES Enablement Feature 3863 [Base GPC, optional Crypto Express3 Card (Accelerator (CEX3A))] [IBM System z10® Enterprise Class (z10 EC) with CP Assist for Cryptographic Functions DES/TDES Enablement Feature 3863 (aka FC3863) includes FC3863 w/System Driver Level 77 and z/OS® V1R11]
