z/OS Communications Server offers full support for TLS/SSL (through its AT-TLS
feature) and for IPSec to protect IP-based traffic as it traverses the network.
In addition, z/OS supports SSH and related protocols through its OpenSSH server.
All these protocols make heavy use of cryptography and leverage various
cryptographic functions on the platform. This session will explore the key
cryptographic software and hardware components that come into play for AT-TLS,
IPsec and OpenSSH and will address common questions regarding when, where and
how those cryptographic components are used.
