Hopefully you are you using Access Client Solutions...
Select your system under System Configurations, click Edit. On the General tab there's a checkbox for "Use SSL for Connection". If you do it here, then anything that uses the connection is encrypted (5250, Run SQL Scripts, etc.)
I can't remember if you have to go into the DCM and apply an SSL certificate to the application or not.
We created our own SSL certificate on the IBM i and use that.

Subject: [EXTERNAL] Change port for IBMi Access Client
Currently we are using IBMi Access Client to connect to our AS400 systems and it is doing it via port 23. Per our security group. We need to change this to use a more secure port i.e. port 992. We have read some documentations that we need to make this change by updating certificate information. We are using some sort of certificate but from what I can tell, they all are expired and not maintained and not sure how to make this change to use port 992 instead of port 23. Would anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.
