Introduction:
Support for Passphrase Security is already available for CA XCOM Data Transport for z/OS 12.0.  Is it available for distributed platforms?
Background:
Support is being added for PASSPHRASEs by increasing the PASSWORD, LPASSWORD and FILE_ACCESS_PASSWORD length to 100 characters in length.
 
 By supporting PASSPHRASEs up to 100 characters in length, user identification can be more secure due to having authentication codes that are more difficult to crack or compromise.
Instructions:

The support for PASSPHRASES have been published as:

Windows: SO05626 ENHANCEMENT: SUPPORT FOR PASSPHRASE SECURITY

Unix: SO05627 (Linux)

SO05628 (AIX)

SO05629 (Solaris Sparc)
