SSL encryption enablement with data direct ODBC driver for DB2 Federation Server to SAP HANA

We need SSL encryption enabled with data direct ODBC driver for DB2 Federation Server to SAP HANA.

This is the response from IBM Support team.

Federation server doesn't support SSL with SAP HANA ODBC drivers. To connect to SAP HANA, customer has to download the ODBC driver by themselves. Federation server supports SSL for the ODBC drivers provided by DataDirect which can be found in the directory "~/sqllib/federation/odbc/lib". And for the server options, "SSL_KEYSTORE" and "SSL_KEYSTOREPASSWORD" they are designed to support DataDirect ODBC driver


Below is the open case which is in progress.

Case Number: TS006419852
