Medical School: Diagnosing SSL/TLS and AT-TLS Problems in z/OS Communication Server
Project and Program: Enterprise Data Center

, SHARE in Boston 2013
For z/OS Communications Server it is rarely necessary to take an SSL trace for diagnosing problems with SSL/TLS or AT-TLS. A simple look in the SyslogD log or even in the messages on the MVS console can reveal what has gone wrong with the secured connection you are testing. Come to this session to see the easy way to diagnose such encrypted session problems.
The examples are taken from an AT-TLS implementation with z/OS and Policy Agent. However, the basic SSL/TLS return codes and messages could appear in any implementation that uses zOS System SSL. The reference manuals at the back of this presentation show you how to find the correct manuals for discovering the meanings of these SSL Return Codes. Gwen Dente IBM Corporation
