Re:Data encryption

Discussion created by ca.portal.admin on May 15, 2009
Hi all,
One of my clients just approached me about data encryption. They want to
encrypt ""sensitive"" data such as SSN and account numbers. I would like to
ask the list if anyone is using encryption and their thoughts
recommendations and/or opinions.

Thanks
Brian

Re: Data encryption
"Brian,

As a vendor I have delivered a solution together with Oracle (Oracle =
Data
Protection Shield) to encrypt SSN off the mainframe with a minimum of
changes to the COBOL application and the IDMS database. The reason for
choosing a system off the mainframe was the requirement to protect the =
SSN
across heterogeneous platforms such as z/OS, Unix, Windows and Linux.

The main reason for this initiative is a Federal requirement to encrypt =
all
student's SSN due to heavy increase in SSN fraud in the higher =
educational
sector.
