Question:

When running CA LDAP with SSL enabled, does it have its own encryption code that is internal to CA LDAP or is it handed off to the z/OS crypto facility.


 

Answer:

The CA LDAP Server has no encryption code, it uses IBM System SSL for all TLS functionality.

The CA LDAP Server calls IBM System SSL to perform all read/writes of data and based on the config/certs used, IBM System SSL does it's job.

The CA LDAP Server has no parms/settings to tell IBM System SSL to use or not to use crypto hardware.
