MVS Direct API CA-TopSecret Support

This API was designed to provide today's PC application programmers an avenue to access MVS CA-TopSecret Security resources. Whether interfacing with existing legacy systems or writing new client-server based applications, you will be impressed by the capabilities that this API provides.

How It Works

The API uses the TSS application programming interface to send commands to one (or more) CA-TopSecret Security images running on MVS. It also receives back the output so that the caller can evaluate the success of the command string, and extract information for future processing.
