Data Vault Encryption

Data Vault Encryption

Encryption in the Data Vault has been enhanced. When you create a target connection for an archive or retirement project, you can specify how an encryption key is created, either by a random key generator shipped with Data Archive or a third-party key generator. The encryption key is unique to the target connection.
You can also specify an encryption key at the definition level, when you create an archive or retirement project. The key is unique to the archive or retirement definition. For more information, see the
Data Archive User Guide
Encryption does not use the CRYPTOKEY and CRYPTOLEVEL parameters in the
file in the server and plugin.
If you are upgrading to Data Archive version 6.4.3, data that you have previously archived or retired to Data Vault is not affected by this change.
