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.

enhancement request to implement "ecdh-sha2-nistp256", "ecdh-sha2-nistp384", "ecdh-sha2-nistp521" algorithms

We have customers who use the NIST-ciphers for key exchange. The IBM support-Team told us, that Sterling Secure Proxy does not currently support the NIST key Exchange algorithms. So, we are asking for it to be implemented as soon as possible.

How will this idea be used?

We need to be able to keep up with the security standards  our partners have implemented in their systems to exchange data with us.

    The requested NIST key algorithms i.e.  "ecdh-sha2-nistp256", "ecdh-sha2-nistp384", "ecdh-sha2-nistp521" are supported now for 6.0 stream and will be available this week on 3.4.3 series.

    The NIST key Exchange algorithms are being planned to be implemented in one of the future Secure Proxy releases in 2019. This could be around mid of 2019 tentatively (not a commitment)
