    Introducing STIG Articles for CA ACF2 for z/OS, CA Top Secret for z/OS, CA Cleanup for ACF2, Top Secret, and IBM RACF

    The Broadcom Mainframe Security Team is excited to announce our latest enhancement-Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIGs) articles-to help you improve mainframe security coverage and protect your vital data and infrastructure.

    What's New

    STIG articles explain how to secure your products, environment, and users. STIG articles enhance the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data and infrastructure for customers using our Mainframe security products. For example, a STIG article can highlight key password phrase fields and values to implement for stronger access controls.

    When applied to your Mainframe security product, the security standards decrease the risk of unauthorized disclosure of sensitive information. We provide these security standards as guidelines. Before you implement these standards within your production environment, especially with large user populations, we recommend that you evaluate the specified standards in a local, representative test environment. 

    To date, we have released STIG articles for the following products.

    Share Your Feedback

    We encourage all customers to take advantage of this new offering, and we welcome your feedback. You can leave a comment at the bottom of each STIG article or contact Product Owner, John Pinkowski, at john.pinkowski@broadcom.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
