    Abstract

    This IBM Redbooks publication will help those Parallel Sysplex installations that are considering serving users over non-secure TCP/IP networks, such as the Internet, to achieve a broad understanding of the threats to their security. It offers configuration design considerations to keep the related risks at a minimum. The following areas are discussed:

    - Utilization of z/OS® UNIX System Services and the relevant security setups

    - The Parallel Sysplex physical configurations as scrutinized from the security aspect

    - Exploitation and protection of the sysplex coupling mechanisms

    - Utilization of TCP/IP in a sysplex and the associated security exposures

    - Topography of an Internet connection and security measures

    Table of Contents

    Chapter 1. Review of z/OS operating system security

    Chapter 2. Overview of Parallel Sysplex technologies

    Chapter 3. Running ICSF in a Parallel Sysplex environment

    Chapter 4. Exploitation and protection of the coupling mechanisms

    Chapter 5. TCP/IP security in a sysplex configuration

    Chapter 6. Securing the connection to the Internet

    Chapter 7. Intrusion detection services

    Chapter 8. IDS configuration using zIDS Manager
