CA has recently deployed dataset pervasive encryption on ACF2.  We are in the process of implementing it across our organization.  Once it's enabled, it provides for the ability to create dataset masks that each application team can use to encrypt their data.   What it doesn't provide, is for a way for applications to exclude datasets that they…
It would useful if ACF2 could enforce 3 out of 4 elements of a password policy while allowing the use of all 4.  Such as:   -Lowercase characters (a through z) -Uppercase characters (A through Z) -Base 10 digits (0 through 9) -Special or non-alphanumeric characters (@,#,+,etc)   The current constructs for the GSO PSWD record would allow me to…

As a CA-PAM Admin, I would like the ability to use NMAP capability from the Admin UI Console, feeding a delimited text file of IP Addresses or Hostnames into the tool to find out if typical ports are opened or filtered (RDP-3389, SSH-22) etc.

Top Secret R16 stated its supports R_password; associated with IBM SAF APAR OA43998.  Has anyone worked with this?  Just wondering as we are seeing multiple events using TSSOERPT utility and it is not impacting our production.  If I need to open a case let me know.  I am just soliciting comments and ideas on how to resolve it.

Everything seemed to be ok since we didn't see any violations in TSSUTIL from our side but constantly received error messages in CICS CSM5 file that SSL connection could not be established . No error was observed either in TSSOERPT for the time…
