nam probe and HSM software

Hi,

We need to configure the keys with HSM software.

As we've seen in the step 5 of the link https://www.dynatrace.com/support/doc/nam/ssl-moni... after any reboot you we have to provide the password again. So we think it means NAM probe doesn´t start till we type the password, right?

Could anyone confirm us that?

Thanks in advance,

Elena.

Hello @Elena Renedo H.

We don't have HSM, therefore, since long using the kpadmin utility to secure the private keys password so after every restart we have to provide the passwords to start decryption the traffic.

As also written the document that "The password is stored in machine memory however, after any reboot you will have to provide the password again."

Regards,

Technical no, the AMD software will still start and still analyze the traffic it can analyze, it will not be able to decrypt any encrypted traffic until the password is supplied.
