We run Linux servers using JDBC drivers to connect to mainframe DB2. The DB2 Team would like the password encrypted when in-transit. Our current configuration looks like this: jdbc:db2://mvsnbdc-db2db2m.redacted.com:55500/HOMEDB2M:currentSchema=CAWEB;
We are being asked to change it to this: jdbc:db2://mvsnbdc-db2db2m.redacted.com:55500/HOMEDB2M:currentSchema=CAWEB;securityMechanism=9;encryptionAlgorithm=2;
Is this acceptable? Do you see any possible issues?
Release : 12.1
Component : CA OUTPUT MANAGEMENT WEB VIEWER FOR ALL PLATFORMS
You can use any JDBCURL that you want, as long as it works. Web Viewer doesn’t impose any restrictions in it. Try to configure that way on a test server. If it works there, it will work in production.
Customer confirmed that they tested and it worked just fine. Verified.
