When you do a transfer from XCOM on z/OS you need to specify the userid and password in the Job. If you do not want to use trusted transfer you need to specify userid and password. But how to secure that?Well, there is this circumvention available:1. Remove Parameters USERID= and PASSWORD= fron the SYSIN01 and store it in a separate member. Then concatenate that
member behind DD-Card SYSIN01 as follows:
//SYSIN01 DD * IPNAME=nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn IPPORT=8044 TYPE=SEND FILETYPE=FILE FILEOPT=REPLACE LFILE=AAA.BBB.CCC FILE=/aaa/bbb/ccc.txt ... /* // DD DISP=SHR,DSN=DDD.EEE.FFF(USERPASS)
2. You can encrypt the password in that member by using the XCOMENCR job provided in the CBXGLOAD dataset. This will
replace the readeable password by an encrypted one. XCOM is able to interprete that encrypted password.
3. You can restrict access to the dataset (in this example 'DDD.EEE.FFF') to a small number of users.
