Update MQ Security Scenarios Redbook with V8.0 Enhancments and provide z/OS examples

The Redbook Secure Messaging Scenarios with Websphere MQ (SG24-8069-00) was published in November 2012 using MQ V7.5 for Distributed Systems as its basis. Since then there have been Major Enhancements to Security in MQ V8 on ALL platforms. Our shop uses MQ on z/OS and I would be particularly interested in seeing z/OS examples/best practices for setting up Channel Based SSL/TLS Mutual Authentication.

    We recognise that this is a valid requirement. However it doesn't fit with our delivery plans for the next couple of years.

    As a result we are declining this Idea. While declined the Idea can still be voted, and commented, upon.
