Creating a connection for client certificate authentication

The IBM® Explorer for z/OS® remote systems environment supports client certificate authentication for users who must connect to a remote system with a device such as an integrated circuit card (like smart card).

Your security device must be connected to your workstation and logged on to your local system according to your site requirements.

To create a connection to a remote system for client certificate authentication, do these steps:

  1. Set preferences for client certificate authentication.
  2. Create a connection to the remote system.
  3. Select certificate from the Authentication method list.
