HP-UX Kernel Crypto Module (HP-UX KCM) is a kernel-space crypto engine in the HP-UX operating system containing core cryptographic algorithms and operations in a single shared library. It implements asymmetric, symmetric, and digest operations that are used by HP-UX security solutions. HP-UX KCM is available on HP-UX 11i v3 operating system on the HPE Integrity Platform and the HPE Portable HP-UX Platform.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • HP-UX 11i v3 on HPE Portable HP-UX on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 7.5 (x86-64) running on an HPE ProLiant DL580 Gen10 with an Intel Xeon Gold 6146 (single user mode)
  • HP-UX 11i v3 running on an HPE Integrity BL860c i2 server blade with an Intel Itanium Processor 9350
  • HP-UX 11i v3 running on an HPE Integrity BL890c i6 server blade with an Intel Itanium Processor 9740
