Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

Encrypt password in the DVM JDBC Gateway credential management system

Royal Bank of Canada and likely other customers have the following need.

With DVM and the QMF Server and the JDBC Gateway the credential management system of Globals and the AVZDRATH job will be a security\auditing issue.

1) If the users are mapped to a DEFAULT global user then the Auditing will show the same user at the target database for all users. This is not generally acceptable.

2) If fifty users need to send their credentials in plaintext to a systems programmer to be put into the AVZDRATH job, then that will be a security violation in that the credentials will need to be recorded in plain text and sent most likely via email or instant message. Then the system programmer will have access to all the credentials of all the users and the transmission of plain text credentials may be intercepted.

    We rejected AVZDRATH early on and requested that Rocket add support for ICSF. Check out AVZICSFX
