This interoperability matrix shows the compatibility between nShield HSM versions and BIG-IP TMOS versions.

Note: The nCipher HSM name has changed to Entrust nShield HSM.

Supported nShield client and HSM versions with BIG-IP TMOS versions

This matrix shows the nShield client, hardware, and firmware versions and their respective compatible BIG-IP versions. Versions of nShield client, hardware, and firmware that are not shown in this matrix are either unsupported or untested. nShield client versions 12.x are not compatible with BIG-IP versions 11.x. Please use nShield client version 11.x with BIG-IP version 11.x only, and nShield client versions 12.x with BIG-IP versions 12.x and 13.x in accordance with the supported matrix.

Note: The supportability of a maintenance release can be derived from the previously listed version. For example, if 12.1.2 is supported for a particular HSM/BIG-IP version combination, supportability extends to all subsequent maintenance releases for that specific version, such as 12.1.3, 12.1.4 and so on. The supportability of a point release can be derived from its parent version. For example, if 11.6.1 passes regression for a particular HSM/BIG-IP version combination, supportability extends to the proceeding releases, such as 11.6.1.1, 11.6.1.2, 11.6.1.3 and so on (or 11.6.1.x.).
