Creating a security file

This section describes how to configure access management when not using Central Governance.

This page describes how to create a security file. This feature is used by the Transfer CFT administrator to generate security files via a data entry screen. You can access this feature from the Miscellaneous Operations menu, the main menu and the catalog, and corresponds to the SECFILE command.

Enter the following information:

  • Name of the file to be generated
  • Generate mode:
    • R: replace
    • D: delete
    • C: create
  • Record size
  • Primary and secondary allocation size, on systems that support these features
  • Record encryption, used to ensure data confidentiality (YES/NO)
  • Record sealing, used to ensure data integrity (NONE/DES/CRC)

The default mode when the screen is displayed is CREATE.
