Gravic Announces Two New HPE Shadowbase Utilities

 Gravic is pleased to announce two new additions to the HPE Shadowbase utilities product suite in its latest release of NonStop Version 6.500 – Shadowbase Data Definition Language Utility (part of the HPE Shadowbase Data Management Utilities) and Shadowbase Repair (a feature in the HPE Shadowbase Compare Utility).

Many Enscribe users need to replicate their Enscribe data into external systems and environments, usually by converting the Enscribe information into standard SQL data structures and schemas. The HPE Shadowbase Data Definition Language Utility (SBDDLUTL) simplifies this process by providing a powerful interface to convert and map the Enscribe DDL data structures (records, fields) into their SQL equivalents (tables, columns). SBDDLUTL supports a variety of target SQL databases, including NonStop SQL/MP, NonStop SQL/MX, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, Oracle MySQL, SAP HANA, and SAP Sybase. Typically, this manual process takes many hours to complete depending on the size of the Enscribe DDL definition. Instead, SBDDLUTL instantly flattens the definition, eliminating this error-prone effort. The SBDDLUTL feature is available as part of the HPE Shadowbase Data Management Utilities product bundle. For more information, please read our solution brief.

 HPE Shadowbase Repair is a feature in the HPE Shadowbase Compare for SQL NonStop Utility to assist with correcting or repairing SQL/MP or SQL/MX database discrepancies between two tables. Shadowbase Repair works on any two tables in these databases, provided they are both of the same type (MP or MX). It does not require a Shadowbase replication configuration and can be used in any environment where a source and target table need to be verified. Repair is particularly useful in business continuity data replication environments to provide confidence (or certification) that the source and target data matches, and to repair the discrepancies when it does not. HPE Shadowbase Compare reports the discrepancies between two sets of SQL tables, which would be an error-prone and time-consuming task to correct if even only a handful of differences were found. With HPE Shadowbase Repair, the user can automatically and quickly correct these differences with just a few simple commands. For more information, please read our solution brief.

NEW SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR ATM AND POS INTRODUCED BY PCI-PIN V3: TR-31 and TR-34

Lusis Payments is committed to providing our clients with helpful information to remain ahead of the curve on topics such as new compliance requirements or guidelines in the payments industry. The following is a brief summary of the new security requirements that were introduced by PCI-PIN V3 that merges requirements from the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SCC) and the Accredited Standards Committee X9 Inc (ASC X9) to create one unified PIN Security Standard for payments stakeholders. There are two evolutions that have emerged from the standards that will introduce a massive change in ATM and POS remote key management. They are ASC X9 TR-31 and TR-34.

X9 TR-31

TR-31 is a Technical Report. Technical Reports are different from standards, which are mandatory sets of rules that must be adhered to. Technical Reports are not mandatory but do provide guidance to those who are implementing the standards. TR-31 is a method that is consistent with the requirements of the ANS X9.24-1 standard for the secure exchange of keys and other sensitive data between two devices that share a symmetric key exchange. No other specific methods have been defined by the standards committee, therefore the TR-31 method has become the adopted standard through which financial organizations will exchange keys. The TR-31 key block has a set of defined key rules.

These rules are securely linked to the key so that they can be transported together between any two systems that both accept the TR-31 format. For this reason, acceptance is becoming widely adopted among financial organizations. While TR-31 is not a mandatory format for key storage, all HSM vendors must provide a Key block storage format. This is already true for all HSM vendors, but it will also apply to legacy systems which are still using old payment applications, where Variant mode key storage is still generally used.

The requirement that encrypted symmetric keys must be managed in structures called key blocks has been revised and broken into three separate phases with different implementation dates, as outlined in the March 2017 PCI SSC bulletin on revisions to the implementation date for PCI PIN Security Requirement 18-3.

HPE Customer Solution Center Hosts Gathering of Mission Critical Experts in Atlanta

This year’s ATUG was hosted at the HPE Customer Solution Center in Alpharetta Georgia on the northside of Atlanta. The venue is one of four Customer Solution Centers in the US and they are used to showcasing HPE’s capabilities and rolling out the red carpet for guests. A big thanks to the HPE team for helping pull this all together. Ken Goldman, Nelson Alvarez, Theresa Norton were all instrumental in securing the facility as well as helping with the agenda. Patrice Yunits did the heavy lifting by coordinating all the logistics.

ATUG is completely funded by the vendor partners and sponsorship. No admission fee is charged to attendees and no admission fee has been charged to the speakers or vendors in attendance. Rather, Partners that have stepped forward as good stewards of the industry offer to pay for the breakfast, lunch, afternoon break and cocktail reception. Special thanks to those sponsors for this year’s event: Ascert, Omni Payments, CSP, ComForte, Integrated Research and XYPRO.

The NSU40s: Announcing the First Annual NSU40s Pub Crawl

The NonStop Under 40s are pleased to announce an additional SIG event at this year’s upcoming NonStop Technical Bootcamp in San Francisco. We will be hitting the streets of downtown Burlingame for a fun filled and light-hearted networking event, all focused around getting to know your fellow NSU40 members and strengthening relationships within the group.

We hope this will be the first of many such get-togethers, and will follow up with a traditional SIG session later on in the week. We hope all of our registered members attending Bootcamp will join us for the evening, and of course, should you know of any other Under 40 NonStoppers, please invite them along to join us. The plan for the evening is purposefully vague, but we will get together at 7pm on Monday night (12TH November) and head into downtown Burlingame for a relaxed few hours. Transport, drinks and snacks will all be taken care of – though please grab dinner beforehand if some ‘light bites’ won’t keep you sustained. We have a few things in mind, but we’ll leave you hanging for now.

Let’s start getting to know each other that bit better… then who knows what direction The NSU40s will go!

Kind regards,

The NonStop Under 40s

ETI-NET will participate to the 2018 Technical Boot Camp with a new Virtualized back-up solution for HPE NonStop platforms. To increase protection and back-up speed, BackBox expert team developed along with HPE a new large buffer capability that goes up to 1,000K.

BackBox is an integrated NonStop-based application with a controller that allows the NonStop and vNonStop to connect to any major corporate storage platform. As the NonStop systems have been the backbone of many running businesses, BackBox delivers not only a timely fashion solution, but also a fully comprehensible and scalable tool to be deployed over an enterprise cloud.

As the holiday season approaches, it’s also a great time to take a closer look at Data Protection. Since sensitive data resides on your NonStop systems and in your Enterprise, that last thing your organization wants is a data exposure event or a data breach effecting your customers’ data and privacy. A data security trend that is picking up steam is Data-Centric Protection – security for sensitive data no matter where it resides, even in the cloud and in Big Data. A major benefit of proper Date-Centric Protection is Regulation Scope Reduction, which is extremely valuable today, with regulations such as GDPR, PCI, and HIPAA in full force. Check out our “Insights” page and read our 3 part series called “CyberCrime doesn’t follow Regulations”. This certainly applies because CyberCrime doesn’t take days off for holidays, either.
