Introducing new Remote Access Security Functions including setting up SSL connections and Digital Certificate Authentication

This session goes through the steps needed to configure DB2 Connect clients to support high security connections used to protect remote access. The latest IBM Data Server Drivers provide support for certificate authentication for connections to DB2 10 for z/OS. Client certificate authentication security on a DB2 for z/OS data server supports the use of digital certificates for mutual authentication by requesters and servers. By using z/OS digital certificates, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol supports server and client authentication during the handshake phase. A data server can validate the certificates of a client at the server, which prevents the client from obtaining a secure connection without an installation approved certificate. The authentication of the remote client’s digital certificate is performed by Application Transparent Transport Layer Security (AT-TLS) that is provided with the z/OS Communications Server TCP/IP stack.
