Overview

It may be hard to believe, but the AS/400 is not tamperproof, despite IBM's design efforts to that end. Consequently, the growing popularity of this system as a server means a greater security risk for everyone who uses it. AS/400 Security in a Client/Server Environment shows how to mount the strongest possible defense against security breaks in the AS/400, and how to recover quickly when they do occur. This book provides the tools for bolstering the security of the AS/400 without restricting the normal functioning of the organization that is using it, including pointers on how to plan ahead for security problems when using the AS/400 as a server, a 3 1/2" diskette containing security auditing and antivirus programs that clean up AS/400 bugs and viruses, figures and tables that illustrate the connection between design and potential threat, easily adaptable auditing procedures and technical recommendations, details of security weaknesses in the AS/400 system, and a complete overview of AS/400 security, from resource authorization models to today's client/server environments.

Park's book discusses the preventive methods and techniques to help system personnel avoid potential security leaks when using the AS/400 as a server. Since prevention is not always enough to stop security problems, Park also focuses on recovery strategies with case studies from various scenarios. The disk contains various security auditing and anti-virus programs.
