    Thank you for this request but we do not plan on adding support ECB encryption algorithms. It has been shown that ECB-base encryption is not semantically secure and should not be used. We would request that the client or server system that is using ECB look to using a supported algorithm that does not have known security vulnerabilities.

    Hello Team,

    As per client requirement, we require to implement AES256-ECB algorithm at API Gateway end. As per discussion on PMR and community, IBM datapower does not support for ECB encryption as well in crypto module we didn't find AES256-ECB function.

    We required to implement AES256-ECB algorthm for Encryption/Decryption on IBM API Connect.
