Question:

How do you signon with a password phrase instead of a password?

 

Answer:

Password phrase support requires a minimum of zOS 1.10, CA Top Secret r9 and password phrase support by the application.

The application must support password phrases.

A password phrase signon request is different than the signon with an upto 8 character password.

So, the application must have different code for the signon request for a password phrase. The application must also provide a field to enter the password phrase to be used for the signon.

The signon process itself is really not any different than a regular signon except that a longer password is being entered.
