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
Do you use CA Top Secret ?
Do you use IBM’s DB2 ?
Do you use CA Top Secret DB2 Option ?
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:
then I’d like to ask you to support the idea and to add/comment business value not already present there.
then I’d really like to get to know your considerations.
then I’d like to encourage you to feedback what’s unclear, to give me the opportunity to clarify the description.
then I’d like to hear the reasons, why you don’t yet use TSS Option for DB2.
then I’d like to thank you for your feedback and to invite you to comment this question or the idea
YES - YES - YES - YES
