New eBook! IBM i Encryption with FieldProc and Alliance AES/400
Organizations of all sizes are deploying encryption to meet data security compliance requirements, protect intellectual property, and secure their customer’s personally identifiable information. Syncsort’s latest eBook, “IBM i Encryption with FieldProc and Alliance AES/400,” explores the architecture, implementation, critical features and limitations of Field Procedures on the IBM i and points to some solutions to the primary challenges.
IBM introduced a Db2 database column level exit point named Field Procedures, or FieldProc, in release 7.1 of the IBM i operating system. This column-level exit point is implemented directly in the Db2 database and is invisible to applications that use that database.
In this eBook you’ll learn:
- How the FieldProc exit point in the IBM i OS enables encrypting data at rest without application changes
- The importance of encryption key management
- Performance factors
- Additional security controls
