When using IBM MQ Classes for Java (base Java for short) or IBM MQ Classes for JMS (JMS for short), the programmer has the option to build their own SSLSocketFactory and attach it appropriately (e.g. MQEnvironment.sslSocketFactory for base Java) for MQ to use for an SSL/TLS MQ connection.

I was reading a JSSE reference document:

https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/technotes/guides/security/jsse/JSSERefGuide.html

And I noticed that there is also an SSLEngine that can be used instead of the SSLSocketFactory. The doc also said that there can be performance improvements with using the SSLEngine over the SSLSocketFactory.

I did not see an option for building an SSLEngine for base Java or JMS for MQ, so was just curious if IBM had ever explored using the SSLEngine for IBM MQ base Java/JMS, in case anyone knows.

Isn't supplying -Djavax.net.ssl.keystore and the other SSL relevant parameters on the command line using the SSL Engine??

I wouldn't think so. When the programmer does not build and set the SSLSocketFactory, I would think the IBM MQ Java/JMS code makes a SSLSocketFactory.getDefault() call to build a default one. This default one would act on javax.net.ssl system properties in it is build.

I raised an RFE for IBM MQ to consider using the SSLEngine for the Java MQ client for performance reasons, assuming they are not using it already.

http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=136485

Please vote for the RFE if you would find it helpful.
