"Enabling Secure Solutions for the Linux Platform."

"IBM is contributing to the open source community the Linux operating system device driver for the IBM 4758 PCI Cryptographic Coprocessor (4758). With this release, we hope to foster further discussion and interest in Linux-based applications which require the highest levels of assurance and security."

"The 4758 secure coprocessor is a state-of-the-art, tamper-sensing and responding, programmable PCI card. Its specialized cryptographic electronics, along with a microprocessor, memory, and random number generator are housed within a tamper-responding environment to provide a highly secure subsystem in which data processing and cryptography can be performed."
