Fix Recommendation

Run the following command to set the value of the authentication encryption to SERVER_ENCRYPT:

$db2 update dbm cfg using authentication server_encrypt

Run the following db2set command to set the value of DB2AUTH to JCC_ENFORCE_SECMEC:

$db2 set DB2AUTH=JCC_ENFORCE_SECMEC
Notes: It is recommended to set the ALTERNATE_AUTH_ENC database manager configuration parameter to AES_ONLY to require that AES encryption be used.

Check Contents
