SSL configuration for IBM Tivoli Directory Server 6.0
SSL is an industry-standard protocol that provides secure communication on the Internet using symmetric-key and public-key cryptography mechanisms. The SSL protocol runs above TCP/IP and below application protocols, such as LDAP and HTTP, and provides trust and privacy for the transport data. During the configuration of security settings for centralized databases, administrators may want to implement additional security measures for accessing the directory database. AIX supports SSL security over IBM Tivoli Directory Server (ITDS). After you install and configure the certificate, clients can communicate over both secure (636) and unsecured ports (389).
