Crypto Express Network API for Secure Execution Enclaves

With Crypto Express Network API for Secure Execution Enclaves, you can use REST API to configure the c16 server, which provides gRPC API to access Crypto Express cards and domains that are assigned to the LPAR. After the configuration, your applications can access the c16 gRPC API through the IBM GREP11 interface, which is provided by the GREP11 server, to securely connect from a Secure Execution virtual machine to Crypto Express cards.

You can also enable the c16 server to send logs to a configured Rsyslog server to view logs.
