Data encryption at rest with PA local v 2.0.3

Post by mvaspal » Mon Jan 08, 2018 2:19 pm

Hi,

According to these links, data encryption at rest is now supported in PA local.

Did anybody try it? Or at least can someone point me in the right direction in terms of IBM documentation as I can't find it

I could only find this link below, and IBM Cloud Support also confirmed it was not supported on the Cloud:

Thank you!

I raised this with IBM in Feb 17 about PA Local 2.0 and received nothing of use. I suspect that the FIPSOperationMode parameter may be relevant but (again) the documentation is of no help.

hi
what I heard back from IBM is that data encryption at rest is not available by any tool that IBM provides

FIPSOperationMode is related to the current SSL/TLS configuration, so it is not related anyhow to data encryption at rest

If you want to vote for it, somebody just opened an enhancement request.
