DB2 Easter Egg Quiz - Kind of

Are you ready for a new DB2 quiz? Here is a tricky question for you. It is about DB2 security, it is (kind of) hardware-related and deals with a relatively new DB2 feature. Curious...?

Have a clue? (The "xxxxx" is replacing the name of the db2 tool). If you know the answer, comment and also paste the link to the page in DB2 Knowledge Center describing that tool. I will publish the comments in the next few days.
