<*ALLOBJ trumps *PUBLIC *EXCLUDE?

<Seems to be a catch-22 here. Assuming someone here can sign on as a
*secofr
<w/ *ALLOBJ authority, is there an easy way to quickly determine all of
the
<profiles that have *ALLOBJ authority?

Yep.  *ALLOBJ means the user has all object authority to any object on
the system.  Working for a security software vendor I can say there sure
is - buy our products <G>.  As a member of this list I suggest searching
the archives or simply doing a DSPUSRPRF to an outfile and then scan the
file for *ALLOBJ, *SECADM, *AUDIT, *IOSYSCFG and *SERVICE.  Then have
users with profiles containing these authorities justify why they need
them.

<When you talk about "clones of QSECOFR", I presume you are thinking of
<copying the QSECOFR profile to another profile. But isn't the real
clincher
<to this is the new profile assumes the same *ALLOBJ authority that
QSECOFR
<has? Or is there some other property precludes the need for *ALLOBJ
<authority?

A profile that is an exact dulicate of QSECOFR has the ability to
perform virtually any function on the system.  This includes creating,
changing and deleting user profiles as well as any other object on the
system.
