First, maybe it's just me, but I don't consider SQL an add-in. Now, if
you're talking about DB2 Query Mgr and SQL DevKit, that might be different.

Second, what release are you on? I'm still stuck on V5R1, but I recall
reading that at either 6.1 or 7.1 field encryption was available. Can't
recall what it took.

Third, you can roll your own. I've done that before, but it is not even
close to what the system does.

Finally, there is a Redbook
( on the subject.

Subject: data encryption

Is there a simple method to encrypt one field in a file - the file is no
longer used in production.

I know - just clear it. We probably will clear it, but Id like to learn

Anything native on the Iseries without any add-ins - especially SQL?
