FileNet Content Engine FAQs

Question 18: 

 Does FileNet CE provide content compression or encryption?



This encryption feature is introduced in FileNet P8 5.1 release. The FileNet P8 storage area can now encrypt content to help protect the content from unauthorized access. There was a huge demand for this feature as customer from banking and finance were finding it difficulty to comply with regulatory guideline to protect data.

The content compression feature is still not available.

Don't forget athnoer factor: encryption requires a protracted handshake and lots of CPU cycles. The peak simultaneous request rate that a webserver can handle is typically three orders of magnitude greater for unencrypted connections than for encrypted ones.Since each connection has to be encrypted invidually, you can't just throw cheap machines doing reverse proxy duties at the problem either the easiest to maintain and most cost effective way to scale a service. You need big, expensive hardware, because servers pushing encrypted content down the wire end up CPU-bound, not I/O-bound.For low-volume sites, the problem isn't even on the radar. But for small outfits running sites with moderate but not insignificant traffic, it is a serious concern. You have to choose carefully how much content is served securely; encryption unfortunately isn't free.

I wish. I'm afraid it's not a sujbcet of direct interest for me. I remember the figure because I was impressed by the discrepancy every time I saw a mention in an article in (or maybe ; they're the two German computer magazines). I at least skim almost everything they write about, whether it's of direct interest or not. This number came up at least thrice over time. Shame that I don't have the first clue where to go looking for a citation It would be in German anyway, but it would provide a starting point at least, whereas all my attempts to wrestle something out of Google were in vain. The obvious keyword combinations result in a sea of vendor ads and product whitepapers, but nothing of value.

DocuWare - Document Management System, provides the compression and encryption facility.

But when we compression, the processing of documents upload/download consumes more time due to compression & decompression.

Also Database need to hold the encryption & compression code, which reduces the performance of database operations and also consumes more table space.

Since FileNet doesn't have the encryption feature what are the other options to encrypt files in FileNet?

It really makes sense to have document compression mechanism. This could save a lot storage area.

Do you guys know any other content management tool which provides these features?
