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.

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.

What is your industry? Banking
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.


    Sincerely,

    Chris Sanders
