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

Post 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 product management 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 notification 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.

Kerberos support for JDBC Gateway to Greenplum

We use the JDBC Gateway to communicate outbound from the mainframe to distributed Greenplum. Currently only userid/password is supported. We have had to get an temporary exception in order to implement this. UYserid/passowrd voiolates our company policy.

Please build in Kerberos support from DVM on the mainframe, to JDBC Gateway and from JDBC Gateway to Greenplum,

    Hello Trevor, I will follow on your request.

    Additional information to consider

    The connection has to be kerberos enabled, this is a regulatory requirement. We currently have been granted an exception by our Secarch team that is valid for 2 years.

    We are currently trying to decommission the DVM/Kerberos interface due to supportability issues. All our outbound DSCLIENT connections to DB2 and Greenplum currently use Proid/Encrypted password.

    If JDBC Gateway is kerberos enabled, and the mainframe still uses proid/encrypted password, how will this work? The proid /password is created as a non kerberos proid. Will there be some sort of a mapping feature in JGATE that would map non-kerberos PROID to a Kerberos equivalent?

    To my way of thinking – with DVM/Greenplum the Kerberos will be from the JGATE server to the Greenplum (and db2, and whatever else). The mainframe to the JGATE server isn’t Kerberos/won’t be Kerberos. Unless I’ve misunderstood (entirely possible). I suppose the mf to jgate will come under scrutiny at some point.

    What are the plans to support native Kerberos from the DVM mainframe server?
