CA Software Change Manger uses ETPKI library function calls to encrypt and decrypt passwords that are sent across the network between clients and servers.


ETPKI is a library that offers its calling applications FIPS 140-2 compliant encryptions. It is a wrapper around the OpenSSL and RSA modules with slight modifications to meet technical and organization requirements. ETPKI redirects all function calls to either OpenSSL or RSA with appropriate data types based upon the FIPS mode configured in the calling application. CA ETPKI makes use of RSA Crypto-C ME 2.0 to provide FIPS 140-2 compliance.
