V/Soft Software, Inc.
Protecting and securing sensitive z/VM data from unauthorized access is now more important than ever. Local, regional, and national governments, as well as regulatory bodies, are beginning to mandate that data be encrypted when it is stored on removable media.  V/Soft Software is pleased to be able to offer two products for z/VM that will help you protect your data on tape, as well as meet new legal and regulatory requirements for data security.
Products
VM/Encrypt-Tape
VM/Encrypt-Backup
VM/Encrypt-Backup™ protects data by encrypting it, using strong, secure and robust data encryption algorithms, as it is written to tape or DASD by the new IBM Backup and Restore Manager for z/VM. Depending on security requirements, different encryption algorithms can be employed, allowing each site to select the level of data protection required. VM/Encrypt-Backup™ provides for both hardware and software encryption, so data backed up on one processor type can be restored on another.  VM/Encrypt-Backup™ uses the same encryption algorithms as VM/Encrypt-Tape™.

VM/Encrypt-Tape™ protects data by encrypting it, using strong, secure and robust data encryption algorithms, as it is written to and read from tape. Depending on security requirements, different encryption algorithms can be employed, allowing each site to select the level of data protection required.  VM/Encrypt-Tape™ provides for both hardware and software encryption, so data backed up on one processor type can be restored on another.

VM/Encrypt-Tape supports the following encryption algorithms:

   1) DES, a block cipher,  with a key length of 64 bits.  
   2) 3DES, a block cipher,  with key lengths of 128 bits or 192 bits.
  
3 ) AES, a block cipher,  with key lengths of 128 bits, 192 bits, or 256 bits.
   4) Blowfish, a block cipher,  with key lengths of 128 or 256 bits
   5) ARC4, a stream cipher, with an arbitrary key length of up to 512 bits.
