PowerExchange Alternative Network Security Overview

PowerExchange Alternative Network Security Overview

PowerExchange provides alternatives to Secure Socket Layer (SSL) network security. In addition to an internal proprietary encryption method, PowerExchange supports AES encryption.
To enable alternative network security, define the ENCRYPT statement in the DBMOVER configuration file on the system where the data movement process runs. If you define ENCRYPT=AES, also define the ENCRYPTLEVEL statement. Also, you can define the
Encrypt Level
and
Encrypt Type
connection attributes to override the values defined in the DBMOVER statements for individual connections.
  • Informatica recommends that you use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) authentication instead of configuring the
    Encrypt Level
    and
    Encryption Type
    connection attributes or the ENCRYPT and ENCRYPTLEVEL statements in the DBMOVER configuration file. SSL authentication provides stricter security and is used by other Informatica products.
  • PowerExchange Alternate Network Security is supported but you should only use it in exceptional circumstances. Informatica recommends using TLS network security instead.
