Additional details for this Idea/RFE:
# Use Case:
Run the Netcool/OMNIbus probe integration to connect to, and collect events from, "DX NetOps Spectrum v21.2.x (was CA Spectrum v10.5)", using encryption provided by TLS 1.2 or TLS 1.3. The older SSL 3.0 protocol is not acceptable.
# Business Justification:
Customer requires all data to be encrypted in-transit for all connections, including internal connections. For this example, this is the objectserver-to-probe connection, and the probe-to-datasource connection (Spectrum connection). This data encryption in-transit is required by banking industry regulations and client security standards. Spectrum v21.2.x CORBA provides higher security than previous versions, specifically TLS 1.3 (2015 standard), which is the latest improvement over SSL 3.0.

The business justification is that the customer wants to use the higher security provided by Spectrum 10.5, specifically TLS.
