IBM Sterling B2B Integrator - Automated way -Existing Customer data - examine ssh pub keys with size

Refer Case details response - Case number#

How will this idea be used?

Hi Team,

We are using IBM Sterling B2B Integrator for managed file transfer service. There are 3000+ existing customer users authentication setup data into B2Bi oracle database tables along their public ssh key data of users.

We want to find out how may of customer users are connecting for SFTP operation using ssh keys and size is less than 2048. We want this data to be pulled to notify customers to upgrade their ssh keys to 2048 key size to meet compliance as earliest.

Could you please provide steps on how to pull this information from B2Bi integrator admin web tool. Can SQL via support Tools /SQL manager from dashboard GUI be used to examine ssh pub keys with size and find out how many such users exist in B2Bi DB ?

    Thank you for participating in the idea community. We have ambitions to include this type of reporting functionality in the future. For now, could you verify if you have reviewed the SSH key API?

    Hi IBM,

    Right now, we can set the "Max Allowed Header Size" for Integrator components like SSP Engine, FileGateway, Dashboard to 16K but the identityToken coming from Authorizer is too large (almost about 512K in size).

    So, we would like to either increase "Max Allowed Header Size" to 512K or I would request you to provide some way to handle compressed identityToken coming from Authorizer at integrator level (like provide a way to add our custom decompression method, which will decompress incoming identityToken and use it for further authorization and access scrutiny).

    Thank you,
