PK Protect for IBM i
Protect Against Internal and External Threats
Our persistent encryption exploits the FIPS-140 validated PCIe Crypto Coprocessor, keeping data safe from theft or misuse even when it leaves the Power System.
Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)
PK Protect for IBM i employs both OpenPGP and X.509 PKI, allowing for the use of the most trusted Public Key Infrastructures available today.
Suite B Cryptographic Algorithms
Enable both SECRET and TOP SECRET classification to comply with National Institute of Standards and Technology requirements.
Reduce PF-SRC, PF-DTA, SAVF, IFS *STRMF, IFS *DIR, and SPLF file sizes
Industry-leading compression technology reduces IBM i data by up to 95 percent before encrypting.
Move Directly to Tape
With the 1Step2Tape feature, PK Protect for IBM i can create and read archive files directly to and from tape, eliminating the need to provide disk space for temporary archive files that must then be copied to tape.
Reduce Save Operations
Execute multiple save operations with one compression and encryption run, making it unnecessary to run multiple individual save commands.
Encryption Key Access
Encryption keys can be stored in hardware security modules on Power Systems and are interoperable with third-party dedicated key management appliances. PK Protect also includes an automated interface for retrieving public keys from LDAP compliant directories, greatly increasing the ease of use of public keys for encryption in Power Systems processing.
The IBM i PKWARE Save/Restore Application (iPSRA) enables PK Protect to compress/encrypt IBM i SAVF files directly to a file in an archive, economizing on both time and disk space. This process is more powerful when integrated with existing Save and Restore APIs.
and Automate Data Exchange
PK Protect for IBM i enables users to write directly to and read directly from UNIX, Linux, and Windows file systems. Data files intended for other ASCII-based operating systems are automatically translated from EBCDIC to ASCII languages sets, making data transfer faster and simpler.
