Reduce Risk and Improve Security on IBM Mainframes: Volume 2 Mainframe Communication and Networking Security

This IBM® Redbooks® publication documents the strength and value of the IBM security strategy with IBM z Systems hardware and software (referred to in this book by the previous product name, IBM System z®). In an age of increasing security consciousness and more dangerous and advanced persistent threats, System z provides the capabilities to address today’s business security challenges. This book explores how System z hardware is designed to provide integrity, process isolation, and cryptographic capability to help address security requirements.

We highlight the features of IBM z/OS® and other operating systems that offer a variety of customizable security elements. We also describe z/OS and other operating systems and additional software that use the building blocks of System z hardware to meet business security needs. We explore these from the perspective of an enterprise security architect and how a modern mainframe must fit into an enterprise security architecture.

This book is part of a three-volume series that focuses on guiding principles for optimized mainframe security configuration within a holistic enterprise security architecture. The intended audience includes enterprise security architects, planners, and managers who are interested in exploring how the security design and features of the System z platform, the z/OS operating system, and associated software address current issues, such as data encryption, authentication, authorization, network security, auditing, ease of security administration, and monitoring.
