When running the job XCOMENCR to encrypt a password, is there a recommendation on the attributes of the output file? I have a user who is asking the following:
But the new password has stretched till the 79th Character. I kept the output file length as 80 bytes. Is it OK to keep it 80 or should I increase it ?
Should the user be ok?
Release : 12.0
Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS
An encrypted password on z/OS is 70 bytes max. This plus the "PASSWORD=" makes 79 characters. This is the longest password encryption possible by XCOMENCR at this time.
Thus, 80 byte LRECL is sufficient for any encrypted password.
