Database encryption for IDMS databases

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on Dec 2, 2006
Hi all,
Our management read a security article by Gartner Group that
contained these lines:
Strategic Planning Assumption - By year-end 2007, failure to encrypt
credit card, Social Security and account numbers in databases will be
considered legal negligence and noncompliance with industry standards
(0.9 probability).
As a result, I have been tasked with looking at what options are
available for encrypting the data in our IDMS databases. A google
search for IDMS+encryption turned up nothing. I was going to search the
archives first, but it appears the IUA site is down, so I apologize if
this has been discussed already. I have to have a project proposal by
December 18.

Can anyone point me at encryption software, procedures for encrypting
data within an IDMS database, or sources that discuss IDMS data
encryption particularly pros/cons? Thanks for your help.

Re: DBNODE
"Hi Joe,

Yes, but I'm getting a SIGNON abort on the backend. That's a
different problem. I've found that the SRTT is pointing to an old
SVC, so I'll change that tonight to see if that makes a difference.

Thanks,
Laura

Hi all,

Just a quick question.... I'm trying to implement a transaction that
executes in 1 CV, but the rununit is sent to another CV, via a DBNODE.
You would think that the rununit that tries to logon to the backend CV
would have the userid of the person executing the transaction in the
frontend CV, but in my case, it's getting the userid associated to the
frontend CV. I can't remember, and I'm having problems finding the doc
on how to get the rununit to use the userid of the transaction.

Does anyone have any ideas on the subject?

Thanks,
Laura Rochon
