The Problem

iChain writes its secrets to SS_CredSet:xxxxxx, while SecureLogin writes to SS_App:xxxxxxx. Can this be modified or changed so the two systems can share the same SecretStore?

The Solution

Yes you have to use SETPLAT for SecureLogin to define the platform name you want in order to adjust with iChain or you can do the adjusting on iChain in order to have the same than SecureLogin. Refer to BrainShare Session TUT342 where they have covered this.

After having set a SETPLAT <name>, NSL created a SS_CredSet:<name> entry in Secret Store in stead of the SS_App entry. iChain can process ss_CredSet entries, so the problem is solved.
