We currently have the ability to work with the Java Keystore from within ACS, under Key Management. I would like to see some function added to work with the IBMi *System keystores.
I understand there is the 'Key Management' tool that comes with the application/odbc package, however that requires mapping netserver drives or downloading/uploading the .KDB keystores for each system.
A tool to interact with the system keystore within ACS would ideally not require one to map a drive to the DCM directory where the keystores are located.
This would be in addition to the already great redesign down the web portal DCM
(I did try to open the *SYSTEM KBD file with ACS, get an error likely due to it trying to open it as a JKS DB type. The *SYSTEM keystore looks to be in CMS format, so support would need to be added for that?)
With the increasing importance of security and encryption, it is paramount to have a good set of tools to help manage system keys.
