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 file. For encrypted passwords, set the jdbc.password2 or jdbc.password3 parameters as appropriate.

For AES encryption (password3), add the following parameters in the file:

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>
Note: The jdbc.aesprovider property can contain a specific provider, such as SunJCE or IBMJCE, or none. If no provider is given, then providers are selected based on preference order in the file located in $JAVA_HOME/lib/security, $JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/security or, for InfoSphere® MDM Web Reports, in
