TKLM and TSM Encryption
When it comes to encryption and TSM you find varying responses from admins. Some use the TSM server as the key manager, others implement a library based key manager, and others use a third party software product. In the past I used TSMs internal encryption key management option and while it is a set-it and forget it process it has some limitations when it comes to Exports and DB Backups. That is where third party software like TKLM can be beneficial. I have recently implemented TKLM and after some hiccups along the way am still undecided on whether I like it. If you use TKLM let me know your experience and if there are any issues of which I should be aware. I'll post my hiccups next week as they will take some time to discuss.
