Subj:   Securing password for NT utilities
 
From:   Adam DeYoung

We are trying to define how to use load and export utilities from NT to Teradata and ran into a security issue I hope someone can comment on.

For the utility user with delete access to production data, what method do you employ in NT to hide the password or keep it unknown? Is there any way other than using null passwords and writing a WINCLI security exit routine, like maybe bringing in the uid and pwd at runtime from a secured external file? We cannot hardcode the uid and pwd it into the load scripts as those will be visible to anyone. We've searched the NCR manuals to no avail so far.

Considering support issues, we would like to avoid writing a CLI security exit if we can put in an alternate method that is simple, secure and procedural.


Thanks in advance,

Adam DeYoung
