Password encryption on QMF Server and Data Virtualization Manager and the JDBC driver.
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.
