To order and obtain the IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor and its IBM software, follow these steps:
- If you wish to order the PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor (CEX3C) feature for the System z™, see the IBM System z website for information about the CEX3C feature available for that system type. The coprocessor and its embedded software are obtained as features of the S/390 and System z servers. When using the coprocessor with z/OS, the publications and host software are obtained with OS/390 and z/OS, and not from this website. When using the coprocessor with Linux on System z, the host software and publications are available from this website.
- If you wish to order the PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor feature for the IBM Power Systems™ (feature code 4807, 4808, or 4809, depending on server type), see the IBM Power Systems website for information about IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessors in that system type. The coprocessor and its software are obtained as features of the IBM Power Systems and not from this website. However, the CCA Basic Services manual is obtained from the Library page of this website.
- If you wish to order the PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor, it must be for use with an approved IBM System x™ server. It is ordered as a machine type-model (4765-001). See the IBM ServerProven list for approved System x servers. To download the software, you must have the IBM customer number used to order the coprocessor along with the IBM tracking serial number located on the coprocessor.
The purchase of an IBM 4765 includes CCA software and firmware that can be installed on the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) Service Pack 3 (32-bit) for Release 4.4 or later, Service Pack 2 (32-bit) for Relases 4.3 or later, and Service 1 (32-bit) up to Release 4.3.
Separately purchased add-on features. CCA software and firmware can be installed on additional operating systems by purchasing a separate add-on feature. An add-on feature is available for each of these operating systems:
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012, Release 2 (64-bit)
- Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Release 2 (64-bit)
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Release 6 (32-bit)
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Release 6 (64-bit)
- Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 Service Pack 3 (64-bit), Service Pack 2 (64-bit), and Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
With a new cryptographic hardware management solution, itcis now possible to centrally manage multiple serves with one or more cryptographic coprocessors installed. The new Crypto Hardware and Initialization Management (CHIM) solution is now available for IBM System x and IBM Power Systems.
To purchase any of these add-on features, contact the IBM Crypto Competence Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Center is located in Denmark, which is in the Central European Time Zone (GMT+1).
