SSH Tectia client tools for z/OS supports also user key pairs generated with OpenSSH. The OpenSSH keys can be specified in the
ssh-broker-config.xml file by using the
key-stores element. An example configuration is shown below:
<key-stores> <key-store type="software" init="key_files(/home/exa/keys/id_dsa.pub,/home/exa/keys/id_dsa)" /> <key-store type="software" init="directory(path(/home/exa/.ssh))" /> </key-stores>
This example adds a key called
id_dsa and all keys from the user's default OpenSSH key directory (
.ssh under the user's home directory).
The public key can be uploaded to the server the same way as with standard SSH2 keys. See Uploading Public Keys from z/OS to Remote Host.
