-We are considering converting our Encryption method from DES3 to AES.
-I'm wondering what are the impacts on consumption of MIPS and if we can use a cryptographic card (or processor).
-With CA Top Secret r16.0, CA Top Secret now uses hardware encryption by default and uses software only if hardware encryption is not successful.
-CA Top secret control options AESENC controls what encryption level is.
-If you need the steps to convert your secfile to AES encryption, you will have to go to docops.ca.com site.
