Version 1.1.7 of payShieldPPRessureTest, the tool I wrote to stress and test your payShield HSM is out.
This new version comes with some fixes:

  • Fixed typos in comments and
  • Removed not functional code in HEX to IP address dotted decimal notation conversion function
  • Fixed the hex output of –randgen
  • Simplified the printing in hex of the response obtained by the appliance
  • Fixed the representation in hexadecimal of the ECC public and private keys
