Because our product used to be sold for an "in-house" model, where IT and/or data-security people did all the setup and deployed mostly within an organization.

Now it's becoming more of a service-provider model, where the owner of the equipment provides initial configuration and access in negotiation that might take minutes or days, from opposite sides of the world.

The customer of the provider doesn't need or want to know about the stuff that the provider (holder of the physical equipment) has to do. They only want to know the few steps they must take to get to what they need - a cryptographic "device" against which to run their crypto-using application(s).

The roles are becoming much more separate than in the past.

I seem to be missing something; what's the point of creating two separate guides?

[there's an "on the same page" type joke to be made here; someone else can do it]
