This IBM Redbooks publication is designed to help you understand and implement the z/OS Cryptographic PCICC and PCICA cards. Although this book focuses on the enablement of the z/OS PCICC and PCICA products, cryptography and the available services on z/OS are also discussed and explained, with special attention given to the new Trusted Key Entry (TKE 3.1) workstation. In addition, we look at how Linux for zSeries supports the exploitation of the PCICC and PCICA cryptographic coprocessors by using a generic device driver called z90crypt, which routes the cryptographic work to the PCICC or...

This IBM Redbooks publication gives you a broad understanding of the Resource Recovery Services (RRS) environment. RRS provides a global syncpoint manager that any resource manager on z/OS can exploit. It enables transactions to update protected resources managed by many resource managers. RRS is increasingly becoming a prerequisite for new resource managers, and for new capabilities in existing resource managers. Rather than having to implement their own two-phase commit protocol, these products can use the support provided by RRS. Since older transaction managers like CICS already offered...
