Encryption algorithm used in TPT utility for data transfer through network

We are using TPT 15.00 where there is a option to secure the data transfer through the network using the option

DATAENCRYPTION='ON'

 

Can somebody shed some light into:

  1. What kind of encrption algorithm we are using in this regard?
  2. Where exactly the encryption and decryption process takes place in the TPT process?

Regards,

Take a look at the Security manual

 

Or check the PDF for your specific release

And to answer the "where" question, the actual encryption does not occur in TPT, but at a lower level (CLIv2, I believe).

The decryption takes place on the other side of the wire (in the Gateway, I believe).

If the actual encryption/decryption locations are incorrect, I am sure someone will correct me.
