Does CA Gen support security PassPhrase?

  • 1.  Does CA Gen support security PassPhrase?

    Posted 03-31-2020 11:39 AM

    I have not found anything (yet) in my searches of CA Support, techdocs, or Communities to indicate whether CA Gen supports the passphrase for secure access.

    Our host environment is z/OS, CICS, DB2, and we use TCP Direct Connect to communicate between Windows GUI clients and CICS servers.

    Thank you in advance for your answers.

    A Broadcom case was opened with Broadcom Support for additional information on PassPhrase.

    Good morning.

    Since you have raised an ideation, does that mean it is not currently supported?

    Thanks again.

    Regards,

    We are on a CE (HE on z/OS):
    TIRSECV
    CLIENT-PASSWORD
    input
    A 64-byte field containing a copy of the password sent by the client.

    I must admit I was focussed on the 100 positions. Don't know if a pass phrass (with all its characteristics like spaces)​ of 64 positions is currently accepted.

    Correct. Gen does not currently support PassPhrase. We are watching the ideation request votes to see when/if this becomes a greater need for the Gen community. Doug, I see you've voted for this idea. Thank you for that!

    If this is a value-add for more of you, I encourage you to vote: https://community.broadcom.com/participate/ideation-home/viewidea?IdeationKey=be02e52a-8ed2-4d96-a145-ea20b0613b6d

    Have a great day!
