New: MQ Channel Encryption for z/OS v3.1.0

Capitalware Inc. would like to announce the official release of MQ Channel Encryption for z/OS (z/MQCE) v3.1.0. This is a FREE upgrade for ALL licensed users of z/MQCE. z/MQCE provides encryption for WebSphere MQ (WMQ) message data over WMQ channels.

z/MQCE operates with Sender, Receiver, Server, Requestor, Cluster-Sender, Cluster-Receiver, Server Connection and Client Connection channels of the WMQ queue managers. z/MQCE uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) to encrypt the data and SHA-2 to create a digital signature.

  • Removed an extra buffer, hence, reduced memory allocation
  • Improved the IniFile processing speed.
  • Fixed an issue with Enterprise License key not being loaded from a License file.
  • Tested with WMQ v8.0
