SSL Security on a PowerExchange Network

SSL Security on a PowerExchange Network

You can configure Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) communication on a PowerExchange network to ensure secure communication. To configure SSL communication, establish certificates and keys that authorize the secure connection between systems and enable encryption and decryption of data.
Each server or client machine has SSL private key and SSL certificate components. You can activate these components by configuring PowerExchange.
After configuration, the SSL handshake and acceptance set up the secure connection. The individual data messages are encrypted using the session key that is encoded and exchanged during the handshake.
PowerExchange supports SSL communication for the following operating systems:
  • IBM i
  • Linux
  • UNIX
  • Windows
  • z/OS
  • Unless otherwise noted, the term
    SSL
    is used to denote both the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocols. Informatica recommends that you use this type of network security instead of PowerExchange Alternative Network Security. The default protocol is TLSV1_2.
  • On z/OS, PowerExchange is configured normally and the AT-TLS proxy handles the certificates and network packets.
