Questions:

TSSCAI receives a S0C4. AKEA, ASRA, TZZ4 and/or S0C7.

Answer:

If you are running storage protection and EXECKEY=CICS is not specified for TSSCAI and TSSCAIN, unpredictable results, including but not limited to: S0C4, AKEA, ASRA, TZZ5, and/or a S0C7 abend.

When storage protection is OFF, TSSCAI completes normally.

The application interface allows sites to link an application program to eTrust CA-Top Secret.

TSSCAI is the application interface for CICS.

A parameter list is built in the site's application program; a link to TSSCAI is done to call TSS and pass TSS the parameter list.

If storage protection is on, EXECKEY=CICS needs to be specified in the CSD entries for TSSCAI and TSSCAIN.
