    Support for Sender/Receiver MCAs is available in MQ on z/OS. It is still a candidate item for a future version on other platforms.

    It would definitely be really good to have the feature already delivered on MQ for z/OS in 9.1.3 also on distributed Linux

    This function has been delivered on MQ for z/OS in 9.1.3. For more details see: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSFKSJ_9.1.0/com.ibm.mq.pro.doc/q132850_.htm#q132850___amsprot

    Providing this option would allow a shop to rollout AMS across interconnected qmgrs spanning multiple platforms vs. a big bang approach.

    The general use case here is that of establishing a policy enforcement point at the network perimeter. i.e. "I have AMS on my local QMgr and my local MCA encrypts inbound messages and decrypts outbound messages."

    Although this is valid another use case is "I have AMS on my local QMgr and my the remote MCA on my business partner's QMgr which does *not* have AMS encrypts messages on their way to me and decrypts messages it receives from me."

    In the second use case we get authenticity, integrity, and privacy where less than a full AMS implementation is required. For hub-and-spoke, clearing-house type operations, this second model is essential. Examples include central banks, claims settlement, ACH, SWIFT, postal services, retail, etc.

    Current AMS implementations support encryption at the qmgr end of a SVRCONN channel. Extending this to other channel-types is a reasonable requirement for a future update to AMS.

MQ AMS Server side only (stand-alone instance) for Qmgr-to-Qmgr connections.

Merged
We have many Qmgr-to-Qmgr connections with outside entities (customers). We need to ability to implement AMS on our side only to protect data once it lands on the queue, because many of our customers do not want to pay for AMS on their side.

Allow security policies to be applied to transmission queues for decryption

Merged
We would like to use MQSeries Advanced Message Security internally to secure messages. The problem is we use MQSeries as a transport to send messages to about 60 customers who may or may not want to adopt AMS. We use distributed queuing to send me...
