Defining Encryption Profiles

Access the Encryption Profile page (PeopleTools > Security > Encryption > Encryption Profile).

This example illustrates the fields and controls on the Encryption Profile page.

Encryption Profile page

To define a new encryption profile, specify a new profile ID, then select an algorithm chain ID. Each algorithm in the chain appears in order, in its own row with its algorithm ID and chain sequence number. Its parameters each appear in a row, displaying the parameter's name and default value, and indicating whether the parameter represents a key. You can override a parameter's default value by editing it in the Parameter Value edit box.

If you intend to enter a keyset as a parameter, check the From Keyset box and enter the keyset ID in the Parameter Value field. If the From Keyset box is checked you must enter the value using the Algorithm Keyset page (CRYPT_KEYSET) (PeopleTools, Security, Encryption, Algorithm Keyset). Keyset values that are implemented for the algorithm appear in the drop-down list.

Deleting an Encryption Profile

Access the Delete Encryption Profile page (PeopleTools > Security > Encryption > Delete Encryption Profile.).

To delete an encryption profile:

  1. Select the profile you want to delete

  2. Click the Delete button.
