    Problem Description:
    HPB order type in EBICS sends bank's signature to the requesting
    EBICS client user. The response contains encrypted characters,
    which are not parsed by the EBICS client. However, it works fine
    when the property security.ENC_DECR_DOCS is set as NONE.
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A code fix is provided.
    
    The EBICS server generates multiple documents while serving the
    HPB request. These documents are encrypted if the
    value of ENC_DECR_DOCS is set to ENC_FS or ENC_ALL. While
    serving the response, EBICS reads the file and decrypts the
    encrypted data, and sends it across.
    Earlier the encrypted data was being sent as is to the client,
    and so the client code was not able to parse it.
