Question

Who is the Crypto Officer (Administrator)?

Answer

The Hardware Security Module (HSM) Administrator is the Crypto Officer (CO). The CO manages the HSM hardware.
This includes initializing, creating, enabling, and disabling partitions. The CO can zeroize a partition or the entire HSM.

The CO does not manage any data on the partitions. Data on the partitions is managed by the Crypto User.
