Encryption of PowerExchange Logger Log Files

Encryption of PowerExchange Logger Log Files

You can now encrypt PowerExchange Logger Service log files to prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data that is stored in the log files.
To enable log-file encryption for a PowerExchange Logger Service, specify an encryption password in the startup parameters for a cold start of the PowerExchange Logger Service. You enter the encryption password in one of the following ways:
  • In the infacmd pwx CreateListenerService or infacmd pwx UpdateListenerService command, add the encryptepwd parameter in the -StartParameters option.
  • In the Informatica Administrator, edit the PowerExchange Logger Service configuration properties. In the
    Start Parameters
    property, add the encryptepwd parameter.
The PowerExchange Logger uses AES encryption algorithms. You can set the type of AES algorithm in the ENCRYPTOPT statement of the PowerExchange Logger configuration file.
