Hardware Acceleration of Cryptographic Operations

Tectia Server for IBM z/OS supports hardware acceleration on cryptographic operations with the following algorithms:

  • 3DES

  • AES-CBC

  • SHA-1

  • SHA-2

  • RNG (random number generation)

In addition, Tectia client tools for z/OS support AES-CTR bulk encryption outgoing to servers accepting that cipher, via an implementation exploiting CPACF (Central Processor Assist for Cryptographic Functions) AES-CBC.
