Getting Started#

  1. Your NetHSM has been delivered in a sealed packaging. Verify the sealing before unpacking to ensure the device has not been tampered with.

  2. Connect the NetHSM’s ETH port with the network. Don’t use the BMC ETH port because it allows wider system access. The NetHSM is available at address

  3. Change the password of the BMC ETH Port.

  4. Initialize the NetHSM using nitropy command line tool. Alternatively, the REST API can be used.
