libica Programmer's Reference

The Library for IBM® Cryptographic Architecture (libica) is a library of cryptographic functions that are used to write cryptographic applications on Linux® on Z and LinuxONE, both with and without cryptographic hardware.

This information is intended for C programmers who want to access Linux on Z and LinuxONE hardware support for cryptographic methods. In particular, it addresses programmers who write hardware-specific plug-ins for cryptographic libraries such as OpenSSL and openCryptoki.

It is assumed that you have knowledge about cryptographic applications and solution design, as well as the required cryptographic functions and algorithms.

This information does not provide information that is specific to a particular Linux distribution.
