Issue/Introduction

AESENC field on a TSS MODIFY STATUS display shows the password encryption being used by Top Secret.

Is there a way to prove that AES encryption is actually being used?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

AESENC field displays the encryption method being used and the only indicator that AES encryption is being used.
Outside of that there is no other built in feature that will indicate that AES encryption is in use.
An idea on Ideation should be opened so the idea can be voted on by the community.
