Description
z/OS® System SSL provides a rich set of C based application programming interfaces that allow applications to protect data using the SSL/TLS protocols and through PKCS#7 cryptographic messages. z/OS System SSL also enables applications to create and manage X.509 V3 certificates and keys within key database files and PKCS#11 tokens.
