|Applies To||RSA Product Set: Digital Certificate Solutions|
RSA Product/Service Type: Certificate Manager
RSA Version/Condition: 6.7 build 420
Platform: Microsoft Windows Server, Solaris
O/S Version: 2003, 10
Platform (Other): nCipher netHSM or nShield Software revision 10.5
|Issue||Install RSA Certificate Manager using nCipher netHSM.|
nCipher device not detected during RSA Certificate Manager installation.
The option for hardware-based SSL keys not appearing during RSA Certificate Manager installation.
|Cause||RSA Certificate Manager 6.7 (build 420 and earlier) cannot detect or use an nCipher based Security World that was initialized with the AES encryption algorithm.|
|Resolution||To permit the nCipher HSM to be detected during RSA Certificate Manager installation, the appropriate nCipher Security World MUST be initialized with the 3DES encryption algorithm.|
This issue has been fixed in RSA Certificate Manager 6.7 build 422 (and later), which supports nCipher based security worlds initialized with AES encryption algorithm.
