where

 

keynameis the name of the encryption key to be enabled.

 

passwordis the password protecting this key.

 

The command prompts for items not included on the command line. For best security, the password should be entered via a prompt so that it will not appear on the command stack or in log files.

 

 

An encryption key created using the CREATE.SECURE.KEY command can only be accessed in a QM session after it has been enabled by use of the ENABLE.KEY command or the corresponding ENABLE.KEY QMBasic statement.
