Before you install WSOP:

This release of WSOP is compatible with Linux only. See the Release Notes for the list of compatible operating systems and versions.

A WSOP server can only use a single HSM. High availability can be achieved by deploying multiple WSOP servers behind a third-party load balancer, with each WSOP server communicating with a single HSM.

Security World software

WSOP requires nShield Security World software to be installed, and a working Security World to be configured. To confirm that there is a usable Security World, use the nfkminfo command:


If the Security World is usable then the state line in the nfkminfo output shows Usable.
