Abstract: The IBM System z cryptographic hardware provides a rich array of encryption capabilities. The functionality available depends on the specific platform and the hardware that has been installed. This document begins with a brief introduction of crypto functions and issues common to all the platforms, and then provides a synopsis of the System z crypto hardware, including the IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) GA2 (113-119) and IBM zEnterprise BC12 (zBC12) (113-121) announcements from July 23, 2013.
