Hello, does anyone have experience with the Thales nshield connect HSM.We can install the following components, but i could not find documentation on the minimal required components for the CA API gateway 9.2:

Please refer to the API gateway 9.2 documentation for the Thales nshield connect HSM requirement and configuration
Configure Thales Hardware Security Modules - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
It seems to be missing on the official documentation.
Specifically we need to know which thales components are required for the CA api gateway.
The CA wiki does not have any installation guides, the configuration is briefly explained.
I found only one installation reference, checking an rpm status, on the wiki.I believe it is outdated however and incorrect for the current thales HSM versions.
From the wiki : Configure the nShield Connect - CA API Gateway - 9.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
The ssg-nshieldpci RPM is installed. You can verify this RPM by running the command:
# rpm -qa | grep ssg-nshieldpci
