This IBM Redbooks publication provides detailed information about the principles of operation and use of new features in the Trusted Key Entry workstation at the Version 4.2 level.

Readers should be familiar with zSeries hardware cryptography implementation and the purpose and usage of the TKE workstation; however, the first chapter is a refresher of the cryptographic hardware coprocessors that are currently available on the different zSeries models, and the history and setup of the TKE workstation.

New TKE functions such as Smart Card Support and Group Logon are described in terms of implementation and setup, and we give examples of the utilization of these two functions. We also cover the process of migrating from previous TKE releases, and provide examples of TCP/IP setup and configuration for the TKE workstation.
