Add an option for an SSL trusted store in odbc.ini for use with the IBM i Access ODBC Driver

We have an issue using SSL with the IBM i Access ODBC driver and IBM App Connect Enterprise 12. You can read about it in case: TS015080103 and TS014801648. 
We want to use an option to add the CA certificates to the data source in odbc.ini, something like "SSLServerCertificate" or "SSLClientKeystoredb"

    The CAAC has reviewed this IBM Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority Idea that should be addressed.

    We understand the requirement and encourage IBM Development to implement if practical.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual IBM Ideas on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your Idea.

    For more information about CAAC, see www.common.org/caac
