Software Prerequisites

The nShield Container Option Pack requires nShield Security World Software and Docker to be installed prior to the use of the nShield Container Option Pack scripts. nSCOP has been tested with Security World v12.40 and v12.60, and Docker Engine 19.03.

Before you can begin using nSCOP you must complete the following steps:

  1. Install the nShield Security World software on the client host machine.

  2. Configure a Remote File System (RFS) for the nShield Connects that you wish to use nSCOP with.

  3. Set up the nShield Connect/s to have the IP address of your client host machine configured as a client of the nShield Connect.

The client host machine is the machine on which you will run the nShield hardserver and application containers.

To access and use cryptographic keys from within a Security World you will need to load or create a Security World on the nShield Connect and map the key management data folder (kmdata) from your client host machine into the running application containers.

For further information on configuring and managing nShield Connects, Security Worlds and Remote File Systems, please consult the nShield Connect User Guide supplied with your Security World software.
