      1) Install the software in XI (What software we need to install in XI?)

      2) Write OS command for encryption and decryption at OS level (Is this OS command going to be in XI box? Any sample codes?)

      3) Call the above command from the file adapter. (We know how to do this step)

    HI Prabhakar,

    from my experience this approach (using OS command) has the disadvantage of being more difficult to monitor and also administer, how to react when there are problems during encryption, e.g. outdated certificates, larger / empty files... . I made quite good experience with adapter modules. One way - as already suggested - is to create your own one and deploy it. But there are also some companies out there where you get the adapter module also with support, so you have not to worry if PGP version, certificate policy etc. changes. Some names of companies I made positive experience is aedaptive or advantco, but there are lots more out there.

    You can just consult google or also find certified SAP adapter modules under:

    best regards,
