RACF Permissions in ITIM
Available now on Pirean.com is some new System z content, written by me about the services Pirean provides for the mainframe platform. I'm passionate about the platform, System z is truly the "ideal server" and provides leadership resilience, availability and security, and a host of other benefits ably described in this blog post from Jonathan Adams on the excellent MainframeZone.
Also on the Pirean System z page you will see a link to a PDF you can download describing the new adapter for Tivoli Identity Manager Pirean has created. I'm very proud of my role in this, and grateful to Stephen Swann and others for their TDI and TIM expertise without which the product would not have seen the light of day.
As a Security Manager, sometime Consultant and former Analyst, this blog is the product of my industry experience in Enterprise Security gained in the financial sector plus years of project, service and people management. Drawing on my experience of both System z and "distributed" access control, IBM RACF and Tivoli - with ITIL and CISSP mixed in - I blog on the practicalities of security measures, trends in governance, risk and compliance (GRC) and, occasionally, on the current mainframe renaissance.
