There is no doubt that IBM z Systems represent the most powerful and secure family of general-purpose business computers available. Secure by design and backed by an ongoing commitment from IBM to overall system integrity, the z/OS Operating System represents the only logical choice for 24x7x365 business operations offering lock-tight control and security over critical data and business processes.
IBM’s commitment notwithstanding, overall z/OS Integrity and resulting security, whether enforced by RACF, ACF2 or Top Secret (ESMs), is a critical partnership in which you, your organization and IBM each play a major pivotal role in establishing a “Trusted Computing Base”.
This presentation, The "ABC's" of z/OS Integrity, will examine in detail the Authorized Program Facility (APF) - the primary control point provided by z/OS and other z/OS facilities. Collectively these are lessons critical to your understanding of the relationship between z/OS integrity and the system security provided by your ESM.-Paul Robichaux-NewEra Software, Inc.
