Card type: Half-length PCIe card
PCI Local Bus Specification 2.2
PCIe specification 1.1
Voltage: +3.3 VDC ± 10% 23.44 W max
This section describes requirements for the system in which the IBM 4765 is installed.
Software IBM CCA Support Program for use on:
- SUSE Linux 11 Service Pack 1 (32-bit)
- CCA can be installed on other operating systems by purchasing a separate add-on feature. See Select IBM-approved x86 servers above for details.
Hardware The coprocessor can be installed in an IBM-approved x86 server.
From the time of manufacture, the IBM 4765 cryptographic card must be shipped, stored, and used within the following environmental specifications. Outside of these specifications, the IBM 4765 tamper sensors can be activated and render the IBM 4765 permanently inoperable.
Shipping: The card should be shipped in original IBM packaging (electrostatic discharge bag with desiccant and thermally insulated box with gel packs).
Temp shipping -40°C to +60°C
Pressure shipping min 550 mbar
Humidity shipping 5% to 100% RH
Storage: The card should be stored in electrostatic discharge bag with desiccant.
Temp storage +1°C to +60°C
Pressure storage min 700 mbar
Humidity storage 5% to 80% RH
Operation: (ambient in system)
Temp operating +10°C to +35°C
Humidity operating 8% to 80% RH
Operating altitude (max) 10 000 ft equivalent to 700 mbar min
A pair of batteries mounted on the coprocessor board provides backup power when the 4765 HSM is not in a powered-on machine. These batteries must only be removed according to the documented battery replacement procedure to avoid zeroizing the coprocessor and rendering it permanently inoperable. A battery replacement kit can be obtained from IBM. See the How to order page for details.
