Some netHSM vendors require that the partition password be longer than 64 characters. That may cause the failure of netHSM partition authentication of such vendors.
netHSM cannot be authenticated, so most of the netHSM operations fail.
Partition password length at the network HSM needs to be longer than 64 characters.
For AWS cloudHSM the fix can work without any workarounds. For the future vendors that require longer password than 192, the following workarounds can be considered: -- Use shorter password than 64 characters -- Some vendors may have a workaround such as setting an environmental variable for the password.
This release increases the password length limit to 192 characters.
