Encryption Strengthening

Encryption Strengthening

Effective in version 10.5, you can encrypt the Informatica domain passwords and secure connection parameters by using the AES 256-bit encryption algorithm.
To strengthen security encryption, the Informatica installer now generates a unique site key when you install the Informatica services. You cannot generate the site key again. Previously you could regenerate the encryption site key using a keyword and domain name in the
GenerateEncryptionKey
command.
After you upgrade to Informatica 10.5, migrate the site key to the new unique site key.
For a multinode domain, copy the unique site key to each node or save the unique site key at a shared location that can be accessed by each node.
You can use transformation language encoding functions,
AES_ENCRYPT
and
AES_DECRYPT
to encrypt or decrypt storage tables with 256-bit encoding. Use the new argument,
keySize
to enable AES 256-bit encryption.

Informatica 10.5 Security Guide
