Enterprise security deployments are increasingly implemented with multiple layers of defense. z/OS Communications Server IPSec and IP packet filtering provide an essential layer of server endpoint "self-protection" for mainframe systems and data. IPSec protects data in the network by providing encryption and authentication services transparently to applications running on z/OS. IP packet filtering controls which packets are allowed in and out of z/OS.
This session will explain IPSec and packet filtering concepts and relevant z/OS usage scenarios. Those concepts are then illustrated with a configuration example using the Configuration Assistant for z/OS Communications Server.-Chris Meyer-IBM Corporation
