Keeping enterprise IT systems secure is critical. The IBM z/OS Authorized Code Scanner (zACS) is a new innovation in the area of system integrity. Pervasive encryption on IBM Z, IBM RACF for z/OS, and IBM Z Multi-Factor Authentication are just a few examples of differentiating enterprise security function available on the IBM Z platform, and they all rely upon system integrity. Authorized programs on z/OS and their associated application programming interfaces are critical to that integrity. These include authorized programs from: IBM, the z/OS ecosystem, and in-house specific to a client's enterprise. zACS was developed to support clients in their efforts to strengthen the security posture of the z/OS dev/test pipeline. It dynamically scans the client's authorized code and provides diagnostic information for subsequent investigation as needed.
