In this session, security expert Carol Woodbury will explain RBAC, the 5 steps you can take to achieve RBAC, as well as how to use SkyView’s Policy Minder product to simplify the setup and daily management of RBAC configuration and policies.

Carol is pleased to be joined for this Coffee with Carol by friend and former colleague Jeff Uehling, current Chief Security Architect for IBM i. Jeff and Carol will be discussing a number of the recent Security Vulnerabilities which have had a huge, industry-wide impact on both hardware and software vendors - including IBM and the IBM i development groups. These security vulnerabilities include well-publicized ones such as Heartbleed, Bash/Shellshock and Poodle as well as numerous vulnerabilities that haven’t hit the media. These vulnerabilities exist in areas such as Java, OpenSSL and many networking areas of your systems.

IBM i has long been known as a secure platform on which you can run your business critical applications. However, securing the system requires careful attention to the system-wide security configuration options, managing the authority settings on your data objects which contain your business critical data (corporate assets), and - as importantly - staying current with your enterprise-wide maintenance and ensure the latest PTFs/Fixes are installed in order to close "real" or "potential" security holes.

    Because the IFS does not always follow the traditional i5/OS security model, the security of the IFS is often ignored; therefore, important data may not be secured properly when it is stored in the IFS. Security expert Carol Woodbury describes how IFS security compares to native i5/OS security and how auditing works with IFS objects. She also explains ways to:

    • Determine what authority is required to a directory or object
    • Remediate (change) from the current authority settings to more-appropriate settings as well as how to determine what the more-appropriate setting might be
    • Use i5/OS commands to help you manage IFS security

    • Modernizing with RPG OA requires significant changes to the source code
    • The RPG language is outdated and impractical for modernizing applications
    • Modernizing with RPG OA is the equivalent to "screen scraping"
