Security mandates that all the connections need to be secured. WebSphere MQ supports SSL but not IBM Control Center, adding this functionality allows meeting the newer security requirements.

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

    In one of the future releases we will be adopting approach of monitoring SSP via OSA from Control Center, hence no dependency on MQ.
