MegaCryption offers a comprehensive, easy-to-use key management structure to allow for a complete life cycle management of keys. With the release of 6.4.1, MegaCryption provides greater flexibility for sites storing their cryptographic keys in the RACF database through the ability to specify a CLASS other than FACILITY in MegaCryption's key management started task. MegaCryption 6.4.1 also allows users the option to generate up to 3072-bit DSA keys, supporting the largest proposed key size for DSA/DSS digital signatures.
An additional key management feature now available is MegaCryption's 'CSA' symmetric algorithm abbreviation. 'CSA' implements AES encryption and decryption when the symmetric key is stored securely in ICSF's CKDS. Similar to MegaCryption's existing 'CSF' algorithm support (for DES/TripleDES), users may now use ICSF-managed AES-128 and AES-256 keys securely with MegaCryption's batch utilities.
With respect to the goal of ensuring MegaCryption programs are both secure and easy to use, a new sample JCL procedure library has been introduced in v6.4.1. These examples have been created with the goal of providing a familiar "PGP-style" JCL procedure for experienced operators of PGP command-syntax products on z/OS or distributed platforms. The new sample JCLs provide users flexibility in the complexity level of encryption processes they choose to utilize within MegaCryption, benefitting novice and experienced cryptographers alike.
Also featured in the release are enhancements to MegaCryption's OpenPGP encryption and decryption utilities. MegaCryption 6.4.1 provides a significant performance improvement when using algorithms AES, AES2, 3EDE, DES, and AUTO in conjunction with OpenPGP encryption and decryption. Further cryptography enhancements include additional algorithms and options via MegaCryption's Cryptography Wizard.
Another beneficial feature of MegaCryption 6.4.1 is the signature-validation utility. When signature validation is as important to your cryptography policy as the confidentiality of data, you may now escalate signature validation failures from the default "warning" status to become an "error" by including this new DD statement in your job step.
Aside from the improved cryptography algorithm support, and enhanced interoperability with other key management systems, MegaCryption also features a robust API for users to write their own subroutines; the direct implementation of cryptographic functions into databases, online transactions, applications and batch programs; the creation of self-decrypting archives for Windows users; VSAM and flat-file encryption; DB2 field-level encryption; and many other tools designed to meet all of an enterprise's cryptography needs.
