This message comes up on the list all the time.  Nice to see you're
concerned.

Standard option is to have all files owned by a user who is NOT a group
profile.  Have *PUBLIC have no authority, or *EXCLUDE,  to any file.  Then
change all of your 5250/batch/etc programs to use adopted authority of the
object owner.  I have an former coworker who had to implement this solution
at his current place of employment.  Now comes the final question:  How do
you let the people who really use ODBC and who have a legitimate reason, to
access these files?  After all we don't want to limit the 400 to green
screen only, do we?

The solutions may be numerous.  I am kind of anxious to here those.

How does everyone deal with security on the 400 and the ability to use
ODBC?

If production files are set to public authority to *change, what can I
do.  users don't have access to manipulate the data from the AS/400 (I have
taken all those ways away).  But even if a user with basically no authority
gets on through ODBC they could do anything they want to the database.


What is there you can do?
