Allow SOAP message signing using RACF keyring in IIB

It is possible to sign and/or encrypt a SOAP message in IIB if your certificates are stored in a java key store. Since you can use a RACF keyring to store your certificates but if you do this then you cannot sign a SOAP message any more. You get an error saying 'invalid keystore format'. Since RACF keyring use has been enabled to store IIB certificates it should be expanded to have the same functionality as the java key store.

    Idea Review. As part of our policy for regularly reassessing aged ideas we have recently discussed this enhancement request again, and unfortunately on this occasion it has been decided that we won't be taking this idea further forward as a business priority.

    Thank you for raising this RFE and apologies for the time period it has been in Submitted status. We agree that this enhancement suggestion would improve the product. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.

    Can you expand on your statement that with you can use RACF keyrings for certificates? I looked at the new enhancements in that fix pack and more current ones and I don't see any information that documents you can now use a RACF keyring instead of the JKS keystore? Only way I have seen to use a RACF keyring is to use TLS.
