How do I know if I have an HSM1 or HSM2

I have 5 HSMs but I’m not sure if they are HSM1 or HSM2. Is there an easy way to tell?

I suspect I have HSM1 because my firmware version is 2.5 and ‘pki as a service’ says I’m up-to-date. Also, when I list the mechanisms available, I don’t see any AES (I don’t think HSM1 supported AES). However, my RSA certs can go to 4096 and I thought that was an HSM2 feature.

Anyways, I’m not sure what I have so I’m hoping there’s an easy to check.

HSM1 has firmware 2.5 (older variant on JCOP 2.4.1r3) or 2.6 (newer variant on JCOP 2.4.2r3). HSM2 has firmware 3.4 in JCOP 3.
