TLSMECHANISM (FTP client and server) statement
Use the TLSMECHANISM statement to specify whether TLS is implemented by AT-TLS or by FTP. AT-TLS is the preferred method for implementing TLS.
- This setting specifies how TLS security is implemented on the server host. This statement is valid for FTP servers if EXTENSIONS AUTH_TLS is specified.
- This setting specifies how TLS security is implemented on the client host. This statement is valid for FTP clients if SECURE_MECHANISM TLS is specified.
- Specifies that secure mechanism TLS is defined by FTP.
Requirement: The KEYRING statement is required if secure mechanism TLS is defined by FTP.
- Specifies that secure mechanism TLS is performed by AT-TLS.
Requirement: AT-TLS must be configured in the TCPIP stack. See z/OS Communications Server: IP Configuration Guide for more information.
Restriction: The KEYRING, CIPHERSUITE, and TLSTIMEOUT statements are ignored when using AT-TLS.
