Overview

HP-UX Kernel Cryptographic Module (HP-UX KCM) is a common cryptographic library in HP-UX Kernel. It is a library of core cryptographic algorithms to be used by HP-UX Kernel products. HP-UX KCM is available in HP-UX Kernel as a dynamically loadable library (DLKM) with well-defined interfaces to invoke the crypto functions. This will bring in modularity and standardization in the usage of crypto algorithms across the HP-UX kernel products.

NOTE: HP-UX Kernel Cryptographic Module 1.0 has been awarded FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certificate (Certificate #2079)

HP-UX KCM is available on HP Integrity platform running HP-UX 11iv3

The interfaces supported by the library follows “RSA Security Inc. PKCS #11 Cryptographic Token Interface (Cryptoki) v 2.20 ” specification.
