An IBM Redpaper publication



Abstract

This IBM® Redpaper™ publication provides information about how to set up and configure DB2® 10 for z/OS® with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) using the z/OS V1R11 Communications Server: IP Application Transparent - Transport Layer Security (AT-TLS) services. This paper also covers the steps for configuring SSL support for non-Java DB2 clients and IBM Data Server Driver for Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) and SQLJ (Type 4 connectivity) clients to access a DB2 10 for z/OS server.
The intended audience for this paper includes network and security administrators and database administrators who want to set up and configure SSL support for DB2 10 for z/OS.

This paper discusses the following topics:


  • Overview of SSL and TCP/IP AT-TLS
  • Configuring DB2 10 for z/OS server with SSL support
  • Configuring DB2 10 for z/OS requester with SSL support
  • Configuring Java applications using IBM Data Server Driver for JDBC and SQLJ to use SSL
  • Configuring non-Java DB2 clients for Linux, UNIX, and Windows to use SSL
  • Configuring remote client applications to use SSL through a DB2 Connect server for Linux, UNIX, and Windows
  • Client access to DB2 using digital certificates


This paper presents additional information to the more general contents of Security Functions with DB2 10 for z/OS, SG24-7959.
If you are at DB2 9 for z/OS level, refer to DB2 9 for z/OS: Configuring SSL for Secure Client-Server Communications, REDP-4630.
