Certificate-based authentication support for Connect:Direct RESTful API

Connect:Direct Java API supports certificate-based authentication. IBM Sterling Control Center also can use certificate-based authentication to connect and manage Connect:Direct settings. However latest version of RESTful API supports only user/password authentication. Please add certificate-based authentication for Connect:Direct RESTful API.

How will this idea be used?

Password/user authentication forces to use one of those solutions: common domain account (AD, LDAP, etc.) with password or maintain separate (e.g. local) users/passwords on each and every server with installed Connect:Direct. From security, compliance and operational standpoint both solutions are not ideal. RESTful API should support at least the same methods of authentication as other tools like Connect:Direct Java API or IBM Sterling Control Center.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and believe this would be a valuable enhancement to Connect:Direct.  I will accept this request as an uncommitted candidate and we will look to add it to the C:D roadmap moving forward.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
