They all require steps for optimal lockdown, and those steps require capable, technology-savvy hands. "iSeries security isn't simple," says iSeries NEWS technical editor Wayne Evans. "The security officer still has to decide what to secure and know the commands to do so. To say it's easy could be somewhat misleading." The truth is, iSeries has the best commercially available security implementation, including the object-level security that is built in, but the user must actively participate in security and properly configure security-related components. You would be surprised how many shops out there don't even have auditing turned on (QAUDJRN)!

Pat Botz, IBM's lead iSeries security architect made A LOT of good comments about the value of the iSeries. But one thing he said sure surprised me: "iSeries doesn't necessarily have technology that protects the system more..." I've always thought that object-level security, built into the TIMI, *did* protect the system more. Even more, I thought it was built into the hardware registers. I hope I'm not starting a thread on all the areas the 400 is strong and weak on security, but just wondering about this aspect. jt _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
