IFS Security

The Integrated File System (IFS) is one of the most mid-understood parts of IBM i yet often contains highly confidential data.   This session will provide a description of the security model of the IFS, the dangers of the IFS and options for securing and remediating the issues.  Topics include IFS-specific authority settings, file shares, the NetServer and options for securing directories.

The Quirks of IBM i Security
Rather than discussing specific features of IBM i security this session discusses some of the more quirky or odd features and outcomes of IBM i security settings.  Hear explanations of the QPWFSERVER authorization list, GID, primary group authority, QUSEADPTAUT system value, the authority checking algorithm and more.   This session is sure to make you say, ‘Ohhhhh, that’s how that works!’
