Issue/Introduction

While trying to setup the use of FTPS, ACF2 abended with a S878-14 in module ACFKRACC.

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

The abend happened while retrieving a private key for a CERTAUTH certificate.  The certificate was setup to be owned by FTPD, not FTPS, so the FTPS address space did not have the authority to retrieve the private key of the certificate.  Either the certificate needs to be setup to be owned by FTPS, or address private key ownership setup by setting up some RDATALIB resource rules that influence how private keys can be returned by the R_datalib service.  That is addressed in Article Id: 42522, "How can the private key of a personal certificate be accessed by an ACF2 user that is not the owner of the certificate?"
