IBM offers a range of cryptographic hardware solutions that add highly secure cryptographic processing capability to your Power Systems. You can use these cryptographic hardware solutions to enhance data-transmission protection and to secure highly sensitive cryptographic keys.

IBM eBusiness Cryptographic Accelerator

Secure Web transactions frequently employ the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. The IBM eBusiness Cryptographic Accelerator board offloads your server from compute-intensive public-key cryptographic operations employed in the protocol. This cost-effective solution often enables significantly greater server throughput.

IBM 4758 PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor

The IBM 4758 PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor is a high-security programmable PCI board. Specialized cryptographic electronics, microprocessor, memory and a random number generator are housed within a tamper-responding environment, providing a highly secure subsystem in which data processing and cryptography can be performed.

Using the IP Security Hardware Assist Feature of the IBM 10/100 Mbps Ethernet PCI Adapter II (PDF, 10.76KB)

This white paper explains the performance benefits of the offload function of the IP security hardware assist function (IPSec) in support of virtual private networks (VPNs) and shows how the function can be enabled using AIX system management interfaces.
