Hello, 

Could you please answer me, do keys stored on F5 in ciphertext or plaintext format?

Also do all F5 integrate HSM module if not is the F5 is FIPS 140-2 compliant ?

Thanks so much

Hello Lami.

The location is this

Certificates --> /config/filestore/files_d/Common_d/certificate_d/*

Keys --> /config/filestore/files_d/Common_d/certificate_key_d/*

And keys could be store in plain text or cipher text (using a passphrase).

Besides this, you can use HSM (F5 supports several vendors).
