Configuration Files

The SSH Tectia Server for IBM z/OS client and server configuration formats are based on the SSH Tectia Client and Server 4.3. The following files are used to store server configuration information:

  • /etc/ssh2/sshd2_config (server configuration file)
  • /etc/ssh2/ssh_certd_config (certificate validator configuration file)
  • /etc/ssh2/hostkey (default host private key)
  • /etc/ssh2/hostkey.pub (default host public key)

The configuration files contain keyword-value pairs, one per line. Lines starting with the hash character (#) as well as empty lines are interpreted as comments.

A complete list of configuration options can be found from the sshd2_config and ssh_certd_config man pages. See Appendices sshd2_config and ssh_certd_config.

In addition, the file /etc/ssh2/random_seed, which contains the seed for cryptographic operations, will be created by the server.
