5:00pm: IFS Security

Robin Tatam
PowerTech

Presentation Description

Experts agree that one of the most overlooked areas of IBM i security is the integrated file system (IFS). Despite containing many sensitive things, including the operating system and all of your application libraries and files, IFS security remains a mystery to most administrators. Attend this important session to learn about securing the IFS, including what users may be doing with little more than a user profile and password:
* Why do we care about the IFS?
* Permissions versus authority * Root folder access
* Auditing IFS activities
* Read/write versus *ALLOBJ
* Anti-virus considerations
