Troubleshooting steps are provided for resolving connectivity issues, server errors, and credential problems when using the CloudHSM service, including checking system status, network settings, and login credentials.

For optimal performance and trouble-free operation, it's essential to follow the setup instructions, especially when initiating your user account. These instructions are outlined in the quickstart section of the respective Primus API Provider's documentation, or the Use Cases application notes relevant to your system. Adhering to these guidelines ensures that your account is configured correctly, setting the stage for seamless cryptographic operations.

If you encounter any issues despite following the setup instructions and selecting the appropriate network configuration parameters, there are further steps you can take to troubleshoot the problem. Firstly, we recommend checking the System Status Page, which provides updates on the operational status of all CloudHSM systems. This can help identify any potential issues affecting your service.

Connectivity Issues

Connectivity with CloudHSM service cannot be established


  • Check System Status Page for the operational status.
  • Ensure your network layer and firewall settings allow traffic on required endpoints, protocols, and ports per CloudHSM Connectivity Details.
  • Verify your Primus API Provider is configured with correct connectivity parameters per CloudHSM Connectivity Details.
  • Use ping 'service-url' to check network layer connectivity; if ping fails, consult your network administrator about firewall issues.
  • Use telnet 'service-url' 'service-api-provider-port' to check network layer connectivity; if telnet fails, consult your network administrator about firewall issues.
  • Ensure your source IP has not changed and matches the IP Whitelisting.
  • If credentials are expired, open a ticket on the Securosys Support Portal to request a new HSM Setup Password (note: generating a new Setup Password incurs costs).
