Cisco Study Notes

Crypto capability (detect via code)

Ensure that the Cisco IOS Software version is compatible with the AIM, by referring to the Software Support for Hardware section of the Software Advisor.

Also check whether a Data Encryption Standard (DES) or a Triple Data Encryption Standard (3DES) image is loaded. The image name will include either “56i” for DES, or “k9” for 3DES. The following is an example of a DES image:

c2600-js56i-mz.121-5.T9.bin is a DES image

Try reseating the AIM. For complete installation instructions, refer to Installing Advanced Integration Modules in Cisco 2600 Series, Cisco 3600 Series, and Cisco 3700 Series Routers.

To verify that the card is now correctly detected issue the show crypto engine config command. The crypto engine type line should read hardware, and the Configuration field should contain valid hexadecimal numbers. The following is sample command output for a working AIM:

router#show crypto engine config

Show line card memory (6500)
