Hi: we're looking at our options for using OpenSSL in the IBM iSeries (AKA
AS400) environment. We already run on a bunch of *nix, Win, and z/OS hosts,
and we are being asked about support for some of our second tier OS's.
Is there anyone who knows of any work being done porting OpenSSL to the
native OS/400 OS environment? We know that OpenSSH and OpenSSL are used in
the AIX-embedded subsystem (called 'PASE') of the iSeries platform (supports
native RS6000 binaries AFAIK).
But our application runs in the native OS/400 environment, and we do not
want to cross over into the AIX-embedded subsystem. We're looking at doing
the OS/400 port ourselves, or some other technical solution.
This is cross-posted on a number of midrange computing lists.
Thanks a bunch for any answers, and for your tolerance of this mail if
you're not interested.
