Allow System Certificates to work the same as CA Certificate groups

Currently when we generate a new System Certificate and want to install it to our HTTP Server Adapters, we need to take our environment down and schedule/coordinate the change of the certificates with all our AS2 customers. Not an easy task given our volume.


Would like to have the System Certificate worked the same way as the CA Certificate groups do. The "Group" concept allows for multiple certificates, and handles negotiating which one to use.


Other MFT software, can do this, since some of our AS2 customers just ask for the new certificate.


We are being told that in the next 2 years we are going to have to change every 90 days. This will end up being a nightmare, as well as not a good customer experience.

How will this idea be used?

Need using Certificates to not be a disruptive and time consuming task.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM. I truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, your recommendations and ideas.

    I need a little more information to understand your idea. Are you expecting to configure multiple system certificates for the HTTP Server adapter? A system certificate typically presents a single certificate at a time, so would you expect some kind of cut-over period where one certificate stops being used at a certain datetime and cuts over to a new certificate?
