Error description

  • After upgrade to Datapower version 7.0.0.14, 7.1.0.11, 7.2.0.8
    or 7.5.0.2, requests may fail with RSA signature failure even
    though the HSM is properly initialized.
    example:
    [0x80600047][crypto][error] mpgw(TP_XA): tid(1959047)
    [request][10.1.0.0] gtid(1959047): *RSA signing failed*
    [0x80600157][crypto][error] wsgw(TP_XA): tid(1959047)
    [request][10.1.0.0] gtid(1959047):
    Signature generation failed: *RSA signing failed*
    
    This is caused by the HSM upgrade to version 2.2 introduced
    with APAR IT15555.
