GI / EI host commands

Jun 27, 2012 at 7:09 AM

Hi Forum,

I have an application that uses the Thales GI / EI commands. It seems that these aren't available on the Thales Simulator.

I'm trying to figure out how much effort would be required to implement these commands. Any ideas/suggestions?

Many thanks,

Chris

Both commands would require that you are familiar with the output of a Thales HSM for these commands (which I am not and that's the reason they were not implemented). Given that prerequisite, EI seems to be straight forward. GI has a lot of inputs and defining the command XML will take some effort but otherwise it should be doable to implement this as well. I'd go about it by defining a couple of classes to represent and generate RSA keys and then it's straight to the implementation of these commands.
