Using the encryption utility, XCOMENCR you can encrypt specified parameters, including USERID and PASSWORD, in existing configuration files. An encrypted configuration file is used just like a non-encrypted configuration file. The XCOMENCR utility does not encrypt SSL configuration files.
XCOMENCR can encrypt all parameters in a configuration file. It supports parameter values up to 31 characters in an existing configuration file. If a parameter value is greater than 31 characters, only the first 31 characters will be encrypted and a comment line indicating this will be placed in the configuration file above the encrypted parameter. Null parameter values will not be encrypted. If you open an encrypted configuration file with a text editor, you will not be able to see the values of the encrypted parameters.
Release: CA XCOM Data Transport for Windows, Linux PC and UNIX.
Component: xcpcnt, xclx86
To change an encrypted value that is already specified, you must delete all text after the parameter name and give it a new value.
Example If the line you want to change is:PASSWORD.ENCRYPTED= 12 0F 36 79 65 AB D0 37 ...
you have to delete:.ENCRYPTED= 12 0F 36 79 65 AB D0 37 ...
Then type in an equal sign and the new parameter value, replacing NEWVALUE with your desired value, as follows:PASSWORD= NEWVALUE
Then save the file as an edit file and run XCOMENCR.
