I see Record type 200 indicates TSO segment information. when i obseverd record type 220 for a userid in the flat file for a PASSWORD i didn't get the location where the password starts & ends(the password is in encrypted via DES algoritham).
Could you please let me know where the PASSWORD stored( in which record type) (or) Am i following the correct method to get the password location (or) it is not possible to see encrypted password in RACF database.
I would appreciate your help!!!.
And why would you want to know this? So that you can use a dictionary attack?
Your skillset contains just Cobol,Jcl,Db2,Vsam, CICS and IMS DB
, which makes your request very, very suspicious - people who actually deal with RACF issues would never have posted the above...
