Encryption for Datacom databases only at the table level


Article ID: 38183


Updated On:


Datacom DATACOM - AD Datacom/DB


We would like to use encryption on our Datacom/DB tables. Can we encrypt individual columns/fields, or only the whole table?


Component : Datacom/DB

Component : Datacom/AD


At present encryption is managed only at the table level, and cannot be specified at an individual column (field) level.

As we move forward with support for the IBM VSAM Media Manager capability, we expect that customers will use the encryption capabilities of the system hardware and software instead of Datacom-specific encryption.

Additional Information

For more information about Datacom encryption processing, please review the Database and System Administration documentation titled "Data Encryption."

As always, please contact Broadcom support for Datacom if you have further questions.
