Description
z/VM System SSL provides cryptographic functions which allows z/VM to protect data using the SSL/TLS protocols. z/VM System SSL also enables administrators to create and manage X.509 V3 certificates and keys within key database files.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • IBM System z10 (TM) Enterprise Class (z10 EC) with CP Assist for Cryptographic Functions DES/TDES Enablement Feature 3863 (single-user mode)
FIPS Algorithms
AES Certs. #976 and #1873
DSA Cert. #586
HMAC Cert. #1117
RNG Cert. #982
RSA Cert. #953
SHS Certs. #946 and #1646
Triple-DES Certs. #769 and #1217
Other Algorithms
Diffie-Hellman (key agreement; key establishment methodology provides 112 bits of encryption strength); RSA (key wrapping; key establishment methodology provides between 112 and 150 bits of encryption strength; non-compliant less than 112 bits of encryption strength); DES; RC2; ArcFour; MD5; MD2
