Cryptographic security protocols: TLS

Cryptographic protocols provide secure connections, enabling two parties to communicate with privacy and data integrity. The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol evolved from that of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). IBM® MQ supports TLS.

The primary goals of both protocols is to provide confidentiality, (sometimes referred to as privacy ), data integrity, identification, and authentication using digital certificates.

Although the two protocols are similar, the differences are sufficiently significant that SSL 3.0 and the various versions of TLS do not interoperate.
