Encrypted JDBC support

Currently it is only possible to protect the db2 credentials in the ilmt was -> ilmt db2 connection by using AUTHENTICATION SERVER_ENCRYPT, however this is not support for ilmt was -> bigfix/webreports db2 connections.

Please consider adding SERVER_ENCRYPT support throughtout the solution to protect db2 credentials.

We would also like to request for the solution to support encrypted JDBC to avoid leaking information about the environment.

Credentials & information about the environment such as ip adresses etc. are classified information, this prevents us from using this product.
