SSL started task

The SSL started task (GSKSRVR) provides sysplex session cache support, dynamic trace support, and notification when changing from hardware to software cryptography. The SSL started task is an optional component of System SSL and does not need to be configured and started in order to use System SSL.

The default home directory for the SSL started task is /etc/gskssl/server. A different home directory can be specified by changing the definition of the HOME environment variable in the GSKSRVR procedure. The SSL started task reads the envar file in the home directory to set the environment variables. This file is a variable-length file where each line consists of a variable name and variable value separated by '='. Trailing blanks are removed from the variable value. Blanks lines and lines beginning with '#' are ignored.
