Uses data encryption with a randomly generated symmetric session key using AES-128 or Triple-DES algorithms.
Features asymmetric encryption of randomly generated symmetric keys using the RSA algorithm with key lengths of 512-bit, 1024-bit and 2048-bit.
Supports encryption of single SAM files, VSAM files or z/VSE Library members. EF for z/VSE can also encrypt virtual or real tapes.
Encrypts complete backups made with any backup tool either from IBM or vendors.
Supports hardware-accelerated compression before encryption.
Provides output of encrypted data on disk, virtual tape or real tape.
