Hi,

Its a specific MQFTE SSL question, but could be a generic MQ question.

We want to setup a MQFTE Agent (FTEAG01) mq v9 to an (QMGR1) MQ FTE Concentrator Queue Manager mq v7.5

QMGR1 will have the following certificates :
Certificates found
* default, - personal, ! trusted, # secret key
! "Hanky Panky CA"
! "Something Else CA"
- ibmwebspheremqQMGR1 (personal key, signed by "Hanky Panky CA")

Now I want to connect with an MQ FTE Agent (FTEAG01) which is signed by "Something Else CA"

FTEAG01 will have the following certificates :
Certificates found
* default, - personal, ! trusted, # secret key
! "Hanky Panky CA"
! "Something Else CA"
- ibmwebspheremqmqm (personal key for FTEAG01, signed by "Something Else CA")

Will this work? - or does QMGR1 also need to have personal signed key by "Something Else CA" ?

I would assume, that QMGR1 doesn't need to be signed by "Something Else CA" to have the MQFTE Agent working. But maybe I'm missing something?

You'd never have 2 personal certificates, or a personal certificate signed by 2 CAs.

Each queue manager simply needs to trust the CA that didn't sign it's personal certificate.

Thank you, Vitor for the clear statement.

I got mixed up, I think by "over"-reading. (but below information is about qmgr to qmgr)

for your information:

https://developer.ibm.com/recipes/tutorials/configuration-of-multiple-certificates-per-qmgr-using-ibm-mq-v8-0/

quote : However, since a queue manager can only have One Certificate, with releases prior to V8 of MQ, you were forced into having two queue managers, one using each certificate. Now, imagine if I have 10+ Business Partners using 10+ different CAs, I need to have 10+ different Qmgrs connecting to their respective Business Partners which is definitely not an practical solution!

SSL is a minefield

In the scenario in the document, I would have not used CA1 & CA2 but Verisgn, trusted that and accepted only personal certificates from the distinguished name I was expecting for the queue managers in question.
