Thales Simulator Management via PaySentry/WebSentry

Jul 3, 2011 at 11:13 AM

Hi All,

I am new to the Thales Simulator.

Is it possible to expose the simulator to PaySentry/WebSentry software interface so that LMK can be created via PaySentry/WebSentry
Can I also add certificates, users etc via the PaySentry/WebSentry interface?

Can't say because I don't know what PaySentry does. Typically, new LMKs are created via the console in 8000 so I wouldn't think that what you want to do is possible.

OK Thanks.  PaySentry is a HSM management tool provided by Thales for configuring a physical Thales HSM.  It allows you to create the LMK, Users, Clusters etc.
I was hoping it would pick up the Thales Simulator.  Will check the Thales posts for this.

That's interesting. Do you know how it allows you to configure a Thales HSM? Or if it works with 8000? PayShield is compatible with 8000 but has introduced a lot of new functionality, so I wouldn't be surprised if PaySentry works with PayShield but not 8000.
