Issue/Introduction

Our risk management organization has asked us to set the SARINIT ENCRYPT parameter to ENCRYPT=(ICSF,366). 

We need help understanding what that would mean operationally. 

For example, would we need to periodically take the product down to re-encrypt the database? 

Also, we allow our development system read-only access to the production database.  Would that still be possible?

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA View

Resolution

The following URL is to the View 14.0 documentation regarding use of data encryption and provides a full explanation of what occurs for implementing encryption:

 https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-mainframe-software/traditional-management/ca-view/14-0/reference-miscellaneous/data-encryption.html

View PTF LU00151 allows for use of a secure encryption key (SARINIT ENCRYPT=ICSFSEC,nnn), as well as there being the use of a clear encryption key (SARINIT ENCRYPT=ICSF,nnn).
