Abstract: Currently, key z/OS features such as compression and data set encryption are only supported for extended format datasets. Learn about other benefits of extended format as well as limitations and implementation considerations.
IBM z/OS data set encryption is currently only supported with extended format data sets. Learn about the basics of extended format and compressed format data sets. Understand key considerations, restrictions and potential incompatibilities. Understand what it takes to ensure applications are ready to support extended format data sets and, thus, prepared to exploit data protection with z/OS data set encryption.
