We are using Data Server Manager integrated with the Active Directory in our site and because of company policy, all LDAP traffic has to use TLS/SSL. Because of that, we need Data Server Manager to support TLS/SSL for it's Active Directory integration.
Why is it useful?
|Who would benefit from this IDEA?||Any site that require the LDAP traffic to be encrypted and wants to log into DSM using it's Active Directory.|
How should it work?
A parameter to enable TLS/SSL in customldap.properties file for the sites that require it would be enough. In our site, the required certificate is included in the Windows server so Data Server Manager could get it from Windows removing the need to install the certificate to DSM manually.
|Priority Justification||Currently in our site, DSM is used by all developers that are developing for Db2 for z/OS and our security team needs to enforce TLS/SSL for all LDAP traffic and DSM not supporting it is holding them back. They are waiting for it to be implemented.|
