We would like to implement CA TPX Passticket feature with CA Advanced Authentication Mainframe.
Regarding TPX documentation, there is a necessity to use a solution such as CA SSO to generate Passtickets.
Is it possible to implement Passticket feature without CA SSO or equivalent product? Is there any circumvention?
PassTicket is supported by CA TPX. (Additionally, Multi- factor Authentication is also supported by CA TPX)
In the Mainframe environment, passticket is generated by a PGM that is embedded within z/OS.
One can write / code your own PGM to generate passticket.
Depending on which ESM (External Security Manager) you implement (CA ACF2, CA TSS or IBM RACF) the
method to implement passticket may differ.
CA TPX interfaces with all three ESM's to assist in Passticket implementation.
You do not need to implement Multi Factor Authentication to implement passticket.
Both are mutually exclusive.
CA AAM and / or IBM MFA, can be used as a Multi-factor Authentication engine with CA TPX to implement passticket
in the mainframe environment.

Thank you for your explanation. Will help a lot.
