Use the PowerExchange PWXUSSL utility to generate reports about SSL libraries and certificates on Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
The PWXUSSL utility supports the following commands and reports:
  • CONVERT_CERT_PKCS12_PEM command. Converts certificates that were created on z/OS in PKCS12DER format to the PEM format that can be used on Linux, Unix, and Windows machines.
  • PING command. Verifies that a secure connection can be established between the machine from which you issue the command and a PowerExchange Listener on a remote node.
  • Certificate report. Reports information from a certificate chain file.
  • Ciphers report. Reports the cipher suites that are available in the OpenSSL cryptographic library. The ciphers report distinguishes which ciphers belong to each protocol and clarifies how IBM i and z/OS cipher names match to equivalent OpenSSL cipher names.
  • Codes report. Reports all available OpenSSL return codes when verification of peer certificates fails.
  • Configuration report. Reports information about the DBMOVER configuration file settings that are in effect when the report is run.
  • Error codes report. Reports error codes returned from SSL processing during an attempt to establish a secure connection between the PowerExchange Listener and client. This report can be used to help diagnose connection errors.
  • Version report. Reports the version of OpenSSL that was used to build the cryptographic library.
  • You can specify the REPORT_ZOS_ATTLS_POLICY command to generate a report of the z/OS AT-TLS rules from a copy of the AT-TLS policy file downloaded by FTP to Windows.
