Pinned topic POWER7+ Encryption Accelerator

‏2013-03-30T08:04:34Z |
In these days, POWER7+ processor was released for PowerSystems. This processor has hardware encryption Accelerator, and standard PKCS11 library on AIX 7.1 TL2 support this. Can IHS/WAS receive benefit of this accelerator for SSL ?

    Generally, IHS can use any device with a PKCS11 driver. But this is not one IHS nor GSKit currently documents as being specifically tested.
