Transparent Data Encryption
by Jim Dee
There have been several high visibility data exposures in the news over the last year or so. As a Db2 DBA, one of your responsibilities is the protection of the data your business needs to run. Your auditors, internal and external, may be demanding action to protect your valuable Db2 data from prying eyes. None of us want the cost, potential fines, or negative publicity associated with a potential or real data exposure. IBM has provided a partial solution in Transparent Data Encryption TM  (or "TDE") for Db2, which is part of a wider effort they call zSystem Pervasive Encryption(or "zSPE"). Transparent Data Encryption provides a mechanism to encrypt your data at rest, on disk.
