Security in JES including NJE Security Best Practices

, SHARE San Jose 2017
Most installations have moved from BSC and SNA for NJE to TCP/IP, however the impact of this switch on security may have been overlooked. SNA and BSC are essentially a closed network whereas TCP/IP is an open network. The impact of this openness on concepts such as NJE node authentication and securing trusted nodes (nodes that can submit jobs without passwords) may not have been considered.
The speaker will present best practices for helping secure an NJE network and managing the risk of trusted nodes, particularly when NJE is implemented over a TCP/IP network. This presentation will include what should be done to secure the network with examples of how to actually configure the changes, and information on upcoming APARs that will be of great interest.-Tom Wasik-IBM Corporation
