The importance of modern computer networks is steadily growing as increasing amounts of data are exchanged over company intranets and the Internet. Understanding current networking technologies and communication protocols available for the IBM® mainframe and System z® operating systems is essential for setting up your network infrastructure with z/VSE®.
This IBM Redbooks® publication will help you install, tailor and configure new networking options for z/VSE available with TCP/IP for VSE/ESA, IPv6/VSE, and Fast Path to Linux on System z (Linux Fast Path or LFP for short). We put a strong focus on network security and describe how the new OpenSSL-based SSL runtime component can be used to enhance the security of your business.
This IBM Redbooks publication extends the information provided in Security on IBM z/VSE, SG24-7691.
