How to place an order for an IBM HSM

IBM Systems offers high-end, high-performance hardware security modules (HSMs) which provide a flexible solution suitable for high-security processing and cryptographic operations to address your cryptographic needs.

IBM PCIeCC3

The IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor Version 3 (PCIeCC3) is the latest generation and fastest of the IBM hardware security module (HSM) family. It is available on IBM Z® mainframes (z14® only) as FC 0893 / CEX6S.

IBM PCIeCC2

The IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor Version 2 (PCIeCC2) is the predecessor to the latest generation of IBM’s HSMs. The PCIeCC2 is a high-security, high-throughput cryptographic HSM. It is available on these platforms:

  • IBM Z mainframes (z14, z13s™, and z13® only),
  • IBM Power Systems® as FC EJ32 / EJ33, and
  • IBM-approved x86 servers as MTM 4767-002.

IBM PCIeCC

The IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor Version 1 (PCIeCC) is an HSM that provides a high-security, high-throughput cryptographic subsystem. It is supported on these platforms:

  • IBM Z mainframes (except z14, z13s, and z13) as FC 0865 / CEX4S and FC 0864 / CEX3C,
  • IBM Power Systems as FC EJ27 / EJ28 / EJ29, and
  • IBM-approved x86 servers as MTM 4765-001.

How to place an order for a battery-replacement kit

IBM HSMs have two on-board batteries which provide critical backup power to the adapter’s tamper-detection circuitry, a small quantity of internal memory, and the clock-calendar. A kit containing replacement batteries for the HSM is available through IBM. This kit helps you change the batteries when required so the HSM remains operational. Note: if battery power is lost, even for an instant, the adapter will self-tamper as a defensive mechanism against intrusion.
