IBM Power Ideas Portal


This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).


Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Search existing ideas

Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,

Post your ideas

Extend field in SSL trace output that includes cipher information

When analyzing output of SSL trace data, this may involve dumping the output to a spreadsheet for further analysis and comparison against cipher lists from QSSLCSL and/or SST (TLSCONFIG).

The challenge when comparing data is that since many cipher names are long these days, the names are truncated with part of the cipher name appearing on the next line.

There seem to be just 32 useable character spaces betweem each "*" to reflect the cipher name.

To see a related idea for enhancement, also to do with challenges when comparing cipher names, see this...

IBMI-I-4113 Make managing ciphers in QSSLCSL easier using 2-digit cipher codes and use these codes everywhere


Example:

*CONNECTION PROPERTIES *

*TLSV1.2 *

*TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_CHACHA20_POLY*

*1305_SHA256 *

*LOCAL PORT *

*448 *

*LOCAL IP ADDRESS *

*::ffff:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx *

*REMOTE PORT *

*56230 *

*REMOTE IP ADDRESS *

*::ffff:xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx *

*QRWTSRVR QUSER nnnnnn *

*QIBM_OS400_QRW_SVR_DDM_DRDA *
