If you truly want to set up SSL for telnet, you can but if you use a
self-signed certificate each person using telnet will need to import your
own self-signed CA.

Possible, but not always easy to explain to your users how it's done.
That's why if you get a certificate from a well known source (may cost a
few bucks a year), most clients already trust the CA(s) that the
certificate is signed by.

You don't assign certificates to client applications unless it's
specifically a requirement.

Most certificates are assigned to server applications (HTTP, etc).

You don't need to create a local certificate. Just create the *SYSTEM

Dear Brad, et al.:

"Just create the *SYSTEM store"?

If I look at the *SYSTEM store, all I see is:

Expires in 7299 days
ECDSA (256 bits)
Certificate Authority (Enabled)

and if I go to "Manage Application Definitions" (something I definitely
remember from the old V6 and V4 DCMs), I see a box for

IBM i TCP/IP Telnet Server
No certificates assigned

If I click "View" on that box, I see "None assigned" under Assigned
Certificates, and if I click "Assign Certificates," nothing is listed to
assign. Is an empty *SYSTEM store really all I need now, for secured
Telnet? No assignments?

Also, as I recall, bringing up the Telnet server in Secured mode
requires cycling that server, varying it off and back on. Is that still
true? It's easy enough to do when you also have a physical terminal on a
Twinax line, and I vaguely recall using it through the separate system
console Ethernet port on our E4A, but how do I do this without physical
access? Through iNav?

And what about the other thing we need, enabling HTTPS support in Scott
Klement's HTTPAPI?
