The IBM PCIe Cryptographic Coprocessor Version 2 (PCIeCC2) is a hardware security module (HSM) that is designed for improved performance and security rich services for your sensitive workloads and to deliver high throughput for cryptographic functions. For a detailed summary of the capabilities and specifications of the PCIeCC2, refer to the IBM 4767 Explainer (PDF, 445 KB).
Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) are issued by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The PCIeCC2 cryptographic processes are performed within an enclosure on the HSM that is validated to FIPS PUB 140-2, Security Requirements for Cryptographic Modules, Overall Security Level 4. See FIPS certification number 3164 (link resides outside of ibm.com) on the Computer Security Resource Center website for the certification. Level 4 is the highest level of certification achievable for commercial cryptographic devices. See FIPS status on the IBM PCIeCC2 FAQ page for additional information.
