Workspace IBM Secure Proxy

SSH Support Through SSP As A Forward Proxy

During recent joint discussions a gap in the SSP protocol stack has been identified whereby outbound SSH connections (i.e. supporting SFTP and SCP) are not supported.

In order to enforce a More Secure to Less Secure network, whereby the network hosts multiple DMZ's it is not possible to simply 'span' network layers and the support of outbound SSH connections through SSP are a must.

From the discussions held I understand IBM have an unsupported POC and I seek to have this brought to the supported product stack as quickly as possible.
