Yes there is an authorization list (it's called QPWFSERVER), but no it doesn't
secure QSYS.LIB.

It does do an effective job of hiding QSYS.LIB so that NetServer clients don't
see QSYS.LIB, so if that is what you are after then QPWFSERVER will get you what
you need.

You can also write (or buy!) an exit program for the File Server exit point (the
file server exit point is called QIBM_QPWFS_FILE_SERV ).  and you can look it up
in the OS/400 Host Servers manual)
