Hi All,

I have been tasked with looking at options available for encrypting
sensitive data in our IDMS database. I tried searching for this in
Google, but found nothing informative.

Can anyone point me at encryption software, procedures for encrypting
data within an IDMS database, or sources that discuss IDMS data

Thanks for your help in advance and Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a
very Happy New Year 2008.

Kind regards,

"Is the concern about the data as it sits on DASD - or about converting
current values in a production database to some form of ""scrambled""
value as it is extracted or displayed? The answer I think makes a big
difference to the solution - cheers Gary
