certificate-based authentication support for CDAIJ and CDW

Many customers from banks need to change their OS users' password every 1 or 3 months for all OS according to their security regulation which means all applications or middleware using the old password must change at the same time.  For customers, this will be a huge workload. That's why customers would like to use certificate-based authentication instead to communicate with CD while using CDAIJ.  But unfornately our customers who have Windows operation system can't use this kind of way to sumit process to CDW which lead to a unconsistent way to communicate with CD.

All customers want to implement is to have a consistent, secure, password-independent way to communicate with CD.

How will this idea be used?

The client will integrate their own application with CDAIJ and use certificate-based authentication to communicate with CDU and CDW, such as select statistics, sumit process, etc.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and we believe that it would be beneficial for Connect:Direct to expand certificate authentication capabilities.  I have accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will work to move it to the roadmap moving into the future.
