From z/OS BMC CONTROL-M for ACF2 STIG
Part of ZB000020
Associated with IA controls: ECCD-2, ECCD-1
BMC C0NTROL-M can run with sensitive system privileges, and potentially can circumvent system controls. Failure to properly control access to product resources could result in the compromise of the operating system environment, and compromise the confidentiality of customer data. Many utilities assign resource controls that can be granted to system programmers only in greater than read authority. Resources are also granted to certain non systems personnel with read only authority.
Refer to the following report produced by the ACF2 Data Collection and Data Set and Resource Data Collection: - SENSITVE.RPT(ZCTM0020) - ACF2CMDS.RPT(RESOURCE) – Alternate report Automated Analysis Refer to the following report produced by the Data Set and Resource Data Collection: - PDI(ZCTM0020) Verify that the accesses to resources and/or generic equivalent are properly restricted according to the requirements specified in BMC CONTROL-M Resources table in the z/OS STIG Addendum. If the following guidance is true, this is not a finding. Note: To determine what resource class is used review the IOACLASS setting in SECPARM. ___ The ACF2 resources are defined with a default access of PREVENT. ___ The ACF2 resource access authorizations restrict access to the appropriate personnel. ___ The ACF2 resource logging requirements are specified.
The IAO will work with the systems programmer to verify that the following are properly specified in the ACP.
Note: To determine what resource class is used review the IOACLASS setting in SECPARM.
(Note: The resource class, resources, and/or resource prefixes identified below are examples of a possible installation. The actual resource class, resources, and/or resource prefixes are determined when the product is actually installed on a system through the product’s installation guide and can be site specific.)
Use BMC CONTROL-M Resources and BMC INCONTROL Resources Descriptions tables in the zOS STIG Addendum. These tables list the resources, descriptions, and access and logging requirements. Ensure the guidelines for the resources and/or generic equivalent specified in the z/OS STIG Addendum are followed.
The following commands are provided as a sample for implementing resource controls:
- uid(BMC STCs) allow
Lavender hyperlinks in small type off to the right (of CSS
id, if you view the page source) point to
globally unique URIs for each document and item. Copy the
link location and paste anywhere you need to talk
unambiguously about these things.
You can obtain data about documents and items in other
formats. Simply provide an HTTP header
