RACF - Securing z/OS UNIX
Duration: 2 Days
This course is essential for anyone who intends to assume responsibility for maintaining z/OS Unix controls or wants to verify their z/OS Unix environment is properly secured and monitored. Participants will gain a solid understanding of z/OS Unix and how it can be secured in a system protected by RACF. The course will explore the assignment of user UID and group GID Unix identities and offer best practices for managing them. Powerful Daemon and Superuser authorities will be discussed along with guidance on their assignment and alternatives offered by UNIXPRIV profiles. Considerable time and attention will be devoted to file and directory access controls. Participants will learn how permission bits and Extended Access Control Lists (ACLs) grant access as well as how UNIXPRIV profiles influence access authorization. Techniques and best practices for granting permissions will be provided. The course includes descriptions and lab exercises for all commands used for administering permissions.
