Certificates Speed Round: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know about Certificates on z/OS
Project and Program: Enterprise Data Center
, Security and Compliance
, SHARE Phoenix 2019
This session will condense all you ever wanted to understand about digital certificates into one mind-blowing session.
At SHARE in Sacramento last year, the Security project presented a three-part series on digital certificates—the cryptographically created files used to authenticate and secure computer transactions. Most people are familiar with certificates used for SSL and TLS (secure web connections using https), although there are many other uses.
For Phoenix, those sessions are being compressed to one “speed round”, appropriate for all experience levels, presenting the core content from all three in a single long session! As a bonus, the files uploaded to the web will include the slides from this session AND all three of the Sacramento sessions, for your complete edification.
Starting with a non-z/OS-specific description of how the certificate mechanism actually works, the presenters will continue on to using RACF, ACF2, TSS, and z/OS utilities to manage certificates, and close with real-world usage and debugging tips and techniques.-Ross Cooper-IBM Corporation; Charles Mills-BMC Software; Phil Smith-Micro Focus International
