Is there any documentation that summarizes what needs to be done to enable ENCRYPTION for a CA Datacom database, e.g. y=the DBUTLTY steps, the DICTIONARY steps etc.
z/os, CA Datacom/DB 15.0 and higher
Be careful, before implementing encryption:
A major point for clients to know is that implementing table encryption requires the data to be backed up and loaded. It will take the same effort and time to remove encryption, should that ever be desired. This requires an outage of the data for applications, which may be a big consideration.
This is a major problem for many sites and so should be very clear up front.
Another concern for some is that some of the DBUTLTY functions must run with DBUTLTY authorized and so if the site is not already doing this, it must be done.
The following steps will enable data base encryption:
- On the data base side, update the CXX, a TYPE=K CXX report will show the available encryption options

DDUPDATE 3154 transaction:
Use the 3154 transaction to specify the Data Encryption requirements for the specified TABLE occurrence. The format of the 3154 transaction follows. Names in parentheses are the attribute names as they appear on batch reports and online panels.
|1||4||Enter 3154 as the transaction code.|
|6||1||(Optional) Enter a valid Encryption Type Code.|
Valid entries: B or blank
Default value: blank (none)
(Optional) Enter a valid Encryption Method Code.
A - represents use of AES128
Valid entries: A, B, C, or blank
