z/OS Communications Server Network Security Overview

, SHARE in Anaheim 2012
Traditionally, network security has been placed at the enterprise perimeter. Enterprise security deployments are increasingly implemented with multiple layers of defense to protect mission critical data systems. While perimeter-based network security is still in force, the additional enablement of network security function at the server provides a critical layer of protection in the security infrastructure. This session will describe how z/OS Communication Server 'self-protects' z/oS from a network security perspective. Topics covered are drivers of network security function deployment into the server endpoint, as well as the policy-based network security solutions that are available on z/OS. The solution focus areas for this session include IPSec, Application Transparent TLS, integrated intrusion detection services, and IP packet filtering.
