SPEAKERS: Tom Price (Mainframe Systems)

Data encryption standards have existed for many years. However, implementing these algorithms in software is slow and expensive, so they have not seen widespread use on the mainframe. Now that hardware support for encryption is standard on mainframes, encryption is easier, faster, and less expensive. Also, widespread cases of identity theft make encryption more important than before. This presentation reviews the theory of encryption, hardware support, key management, z/OS and database support, and shows measurements of the cost of encryption.
