We would like to know when our Server or Client Certificates are being used? This would include from what source and to whom.

    IBM does not intend to provide a solution to this request at this time, so it is being closed.

    The ability to track when a certificate has been used including the application using the certificate, the client IP address, and other helpful information is a nice suggestion. This feature is under consideration, but has not been committed at this time.
