ITM for Omegamon (TEPS functionality) should support passphrases

ITM 6.3.0 FP7 SP2/SP5 does not support passphrases.

Currently ITM limitations are as follows:

1) up to 50 characters

2) For Distributed system, the acceptable characters are as following -

For tacmd login those characters are between the brackets { }:

{-A-Za-z 0-9_#‌$@.}

3) For TEPS login those characters are between the brackets { }

{-A-Za-z0-9_ .://}

So acceptable characters are common ones between 2 and 3 which means a very small character set

Omegamon Mainframe has full passphrase support depending from security system definition rules.

Please see APAR OA57133


Teps is TEPS running on a distributed system and is managing Mainframe systems.
Login has to be possible by userids which are synchronized between distributed and mainframe systems.

Therefore it's necessary that ITM supports passphrases analogous to mainframe possibilities including special characters and blanks.

Rules have to be same between TEPS login and TACMD login (usually done by the same userid!)


2022-08-04 additional information:
Please note that Omegamon on z/OS meanwhile supports up to 62-byte passphrase (OA63423)

    Hello,

    I described very detailed what is status quo and why this does not meet the requirements for "passphrase support".

    I referred to the passphrase functional scope of Omegamon Mainframe and requested the same level for ITM.

    What's vague there?


    Regards

    I'll check with the team to see if this definition is enough. The request from the customer is vague unless we review this link. Otherwise, in the case TS005549544 I only see "....But that does not mean passphrases (including Upper/Lower Case, Blanks and special characters)."
