Java API for CCA


The IBM Java API for CCA (jCCA) package consist of a Java Framework, which gives access to use all the Cryptographic services available in the IBM CCA and IBM ICSF software interface to the IBM cryptographic hardware.

jCCA can also be used for applications running in the IBM Websphere server environment.

jCCA framework highlights:



By using the IBM jCCA package it is possible to create high-security applications in Java.

IBM jCCA provides state of the art Cryptography to applications across platforms and gives application scalability a new dimension.


IBM jCCA covers a wide range of IBM platforms, and thus ensures that investments in development of secure applications can be utilized cost effectively for both a low and a high volume of transactions.

User friendly solution

The interface provided by jCCA is consistent across all platforms. The application programmers only have to learn one interface to CCA. The differences in CCA between for example 31 bits and 64 bits verbs on the z/OS platform are handled by IBM jCCA so that the application programmers only need to know the jCCA Java API.

Supported Environments

1. Supports ALL CCA functions present in the general available IBM CCA and ICSF versions on the platforms where they are supported, which covers z Systems: zOS, zLinux;  Power: AIX;   Intel86 (Lenovo): Linux, windows.
