    Hello CA Mainfraime Security community!

     

    I’d like to gain a comprehesive view of Top Secret DB2 option, its usage and potential for improvement

     

    Because a formal type "poll" is not available here in CA Mainframe Security and to keep it simple I’d like to pose four questions and to ask you for feedback

     

    Question1:

    Do you use CA Top Secret ?

     

    Question 2:

    Do you use IBM’s DB2 ?

     

    Question 3:

    Do you use CA Top Secret DB2 Option ?

     

    Question 4:

    Would you earn advantages, if idea Enhance Top Secret for DB2 security administration  would be implemented?

     

    In short: this idea suggests an option to prepend the db2-group-id to the front of the resourcename (in preference of indicating the DB2-group-id by the FACILITY-keyword)  to provide a global scope on the DB2-resources. Please see all details in the idea-document.

     

    Potential combination of answers: 

    • If your answer is “YES” -  “YES” -  “YES” - “YES“ 

    then I’d like to ask you to support the idea and to add/comment business value not already present there.

    • If your answer is “YES” -  “YES” -  “YES” - “NO“ 

    then I’d really like to get to know your considerations.

    • If your answer is “YES” -  “YES” -  “YES” - “don’t know“ 

    then I’d like to encourage you to feedback what’s unclear, to give me the opportunity to clarify the description.

    • If your answer is “YES” -  “YES” -  “NO” - n/a 

    then I’d like to hear the reasons, why you don’t yet use TSS Option for DB2.

    • If your answer is “NO” or  “NO” -  n/a  - n/a

    then I’d like to thank you for your feedback and to invite you to comment this question or the idea

    • Any other answers are highly appreciated too!
