SSL_CONTEXT_METHOD Statement

SSL_CONTEXT_METHOD Statement

The SSL_CONTEXT_METHOD statement selects the TLS version that the peer supports for PowerExchange SSL/TLS communication.
Linux, UNIX, and Windows, IBM i, and z/OS
SSL, SSL_ALLOW_SELFSIGNED, SSL_CIPHER_LIST, SSL_REQ_CLNT_CERT, SSL_REQ_SRVR_CERT, and SSL_TOLERATE_UNTRUSTED_ISSUER
No
SSL_CONTEXT_METHOD=
context_method
  • TLSV1
    . The peer supports TLS version 1.
  • TLSV1_1
    . The peer supports TLS version 1.1.
  • TLSV1_2
    . The peer supports TLS version 1.2.
On IBM i:
  • TLSV1
    is allowed on V5R2.
  • TLSV1_1
    is allowed on V5R2.
  • TLSV1_2
    is allowed on V5R2, V5R3, and V5R4 and is the recommended choice.
  • Select the same values for the client and server.
  • Informatica recommends avoiding the use of protocols TLSV1_1 and TLSV1, and specifying protocol TLSV1_2 on all machine types. The TLSV1_3 protocol is not currently supported by PowerExchange.
  • If SSL_CONTEXT_METHOD is not specified then the default is that the system will accept a connection request for all protocols supported by the IBM i release.
