IBM announced storage, processing, security, recovery, and data transfer enhancements for z/VSE 6.2 on May 4, 2021. See the corresponding announcement letter for your geography:
Exploitation of the latest IBM System Storage technology
Exploitation of latest IBM z15 Model T01 and T02 technology
z/VSE 6.2 provides native support for System Recovery Boost (APAR DY47832). This enables z/VSE to temporarily boost general-purpose central processors (CPs) running at sub-capacity to full capacity in a logical partition (LPAR) during system IPL and shutdown.
z/VSE 6.2 supports the configurable IBM Crypto Express7S (APAR DY47834), which enables data encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) acceleration. Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) with a Crypto Express7S can result in accelerated data-in-flight encryption.
The following support is already available with z/VSE 6.2
z/VSE supports the IBM Fibre Connection (FICON) Express16S+ and FICON Express16SA, as well as the OSA-Express6S/7S family.
z/VSE supports IBM Fibre Channel Endpoint Security, which provides server authentication and data encryption to protect the integrity and confidentiality of data.
z/VSE support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.3
TLS 1.3 support (APAR DY30239) is based on VSE Crypto Services/OpenSSL 1.1.1d update (APAR DY47825, in March 2020).
VSE/POWER PNET SSL supports all available ciphers, including TLS 1.3 (APAR DY47842).
CICS TS for z/VSE 2.2 supports TLS 1.3 inbound connections (APAR PH28252).
Interactive User Interface (IUI). Various job skeletons (ICCF library 59) have been updated to include TLS 1.3 cipher suites (APAR PH31756).
Updates for z/VSE Connector Workstation components for OpenSSL TLS 1.3 support (APAR PH35841).
IBM Data Language/I (DL/I) VSE 1.12.1 support
I greatly appreciate your feedback via the z/VSE contact form.
