Authentication options for InfoSphere MDM Web Reports
There are several authentication options available during installation.
User authentication to the MDM database happens by enabling one of these options:
- Set thejdbc.user and jdbc.password parameters in the webreports.properties file. For encrypted passwords, set the jdbc.password2 or jdbc.password3 parameters as appropriate.
For AES encryption (
password3), add the following parameters in the
jdbc.password3 = <the database password encrypted with the madpwd3 utility> jdbc.aeskeyfile = <the path to file containing an AES 128, 192 or 256-bit key> jdbc.aesivfile = <the path to the file containing an AES initialization vector> jdbc.aesprovider = <(optional) the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) provider>
jdbc.aesproviderproperty can contain a specific provider, such as
none. If no provider is given, then providers are selected based on preference order in the java.security file located in $JAVA_HOME/lib/security, $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security or, for InfoSphere® MDM Web Reports, in webreports.properties.
