Abstract

This IBM® Redbooks® publication provides a broad explanation of data protection through encryption and IBM Z pervasive encryption with a focus on z/OS® data set encryption. It discusses how the various hardware and software components interact in a z/OS data set encryption environment.
In addition, this book concentrates on the planning and preparing of the environment and offers implementation, configuration, and operational examples that can be used in z/OS data set encryption environments.
This publication is useful to IT architects, system programmer, and security administrators who plan for, deploy, and manage security on the Z platform. The reader is expected to have a basic understanding of IBM Z security concepts.
