Issue/Introduction

When implementing the KDFAES encryption algorithm in RACF, are there any implications for CA-Dispatch?

Environment

CA Dispatch 11.6 and 11.7
z/OS
External Security
RACF

Resolution

No compatibility considerations.

CA Dispatch, when using external security, just passes along the password/password phrase as entered by the user directly to the external security package.
What the external security package does with it is of no consequence to CA Dispatch.
No action is necessary for CA Dispatch.
