Today IBM announced an update of the IBM Security Key Lifecycle Manager (SKLM).
You may need this product, if you use the IBM System Storage TS1140 tape drives with drive-based data encryption to protect your data.
The announcement letter is here.
The product page is here.
The SKLM provides the Key Encryption Key Labels (KEKLs) required for the z/VSE Job Control KEKL statement.
A job running on z/VSE can issue a request to encrypt the data to be stored on tape. This request is initiated using the appropriate mode setting in the Job Control ASSGN statement and the Job Control KEKL statement.
