Liberty should support AT-TLS "awareness"

Liberty profile JVMS should support AT-TLS "awareness" at the same level that other products like CICS do.

    IBM is positioning IBM Zert as security focal point on TLS and SSH sessions. The SMF 119 security data is provided by AT_TLS.

    We think this is a good strategy to have this security information at a focal point in Zert. As such we try to deliver most TLS implementation with AT-TLS. We do see that the main reason not to use AT-TLS is that an application losses functionality because they are not AT-TLS controlled opr aware.

    We would like to see that also Liberty and as such also z/OS Connect can use AT-TLS without loosing functionaliy.

    So please add this functionality to Websphere / Liberty

    We are strongly vote for this RFE, because we need ATTLSAWARE for in- and outbound communication in Liberty-Server.

    When we now use AT-TLS on outbound communication, then all applications has to change their URLs from "https" to "http". If they have further SSL-aware parameters in their URL, they have to exclude it. Otherwise Liberty demands a SSL-configuration. What we need is an ATTLSAWARE-Parameter, that applications can use their https-URL, but Liberty checks, that TLS will be done by Comm-Server.
    Now it is really confusing for applications. Use they "http" or "https". And furthermore it's a huge problem, moving applications from local Liberty to CICS-Liberty

    Same procedure for incoming requests. We want to use the httpsPort in the endpoint-definition in server.xml. So, that it is clear, that we run with SSL.
