Description

IBM Encryption Pattern for Guardium Encryption Expert is a pattern for IBM PureApplication System virtual pattern deployers, who want to encrypt on-disk data.

The Guardium Data Encryption Database Agent (file system agent) is deployed on virtual application patterns and virtual system patterns to support data-at-rest encryption on PureApplication System.

Data encryption management for virtual application patterns and virtual system patterns is policy-driven, using the following policies:

  • Encryption policy: This policy is used to encrypt data within directories that are not encrypted.
  • Decryption policy: This policy is used to remove encryption from encrypted directories.
  • Operational policy: This policy is used to encrypt data that is written into directories that are encrypted.

The Guardium (Data Security Manager) server, which is external to PureApplication System, communicates with the file system agent to provide the encryption, decryption, and operational policies.

When the virtual application patterns and virtual system patterns are deployed, the data within the targeted file paths is encrypted on your deployed virtual machines.

To use IBM Encryption Pattern for Guardium Encryption Expert, you must download both the pattern itself and the virtual system script packages and virtual application plug-ins and policies provided below.
