Using DFH$RING for IPIC communication with SSL client authentication in CICS TS

This Technote gives guidance with using sample REXX exec DFH$RING to set up key rings on RACF subsystems which are each on a different sysplex. It addresses problems such as being unable to acquire an IPCONN when attempting to use client authentication and IPIC communication for the first time. It shows how to use the RACF export facility for certain certificates to export from the sysplex of the client CICS system to the sysplex of the server CICS system.
