A NETRC data set is nothing but a plain sequential file. You create it, edit it via TSO (or whatever) to put the login credentials you want in it, and then you use it in FTP jobs.
If you want it secured, you MUST talk to your site support group and have the site security person secure it as required. Depending upon the site and where the FTP is going, the security may be fairly loose or very restrictive.
