IBM Sterling Ideas

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:

Post your ideas

IBM is transforming its request for enhancement (RFE) process. The purpose of the transformation is to provide a more consistent experience for you to submit requests and to enable IBM product owners to respond to your requests more quickly. For more information click here.

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,
1. Post an idea
2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you
3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Add TLS 1.3 Support to Connect:Direct for HPE Nonstop Platform

It was mentioned in HPE NonStop Forum that TLSv1.3 will be coming out later 2019 year. It was also mentioned by HPE that TLSv1.0 is a degraded security protocol and that HPE NonStop Client Applications running on X86 and Itanium Platform need to move away fromTLSv1.0, and need to Migrate to TLS 1.3. This is Typical lifecycle/product support request for enhancement to adopt newly released security offering.

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I've reviewed this with my team and we are in agreement that this request is reasonable and would be beneficial to our broader customer base.  I will accepted this request as an uncommitted candidate and will look to add TLS v1.3 support to our roadmap moving forward for NonStop and our other platforms.

    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders

    This is required in our industry. There should a path for having the new TLS 1.3 security.
