How to store security credentials (userid and password) to be used in REXX programs that use EPI in a secure way 





Release : 14.0


To securely store credentials to be used to log on to applications using EPI, we recommend keeping them in global variables. You can restrict access to specific global variables using security rules. 

You can add another layer of security by encrypting the password when storing it in the global variable. You can use any mechanism you prefer since a simple REXX functions C2X/X2C or another method of your choice.
