Q

How do I secure an IDoc?

How do I secure IDocs? Is it possible to encrypt an IDoc? My problem is after creating the IDoc, I have to encrypt it by using a Java program, but is encryption possible? Can I configure the IDoc after encryption only if it has to go to the target system? I can decrypt by using my Java program, but how can I capture the IDoc in the receiving system for decryption?
IDocs have no encryption and there is not much sense in doing so. To send IDocs, you pack them in an encrypted package like a ZIP file or send them via HTTPS to the target. This is sufficient encryption for every purpose.
