In this paper, we summarize and explain the security functions available to a typical enterprise computing installation using the IBM z/OS™ operating system and Security Server. The discussion is at a high level, aimed at enterprise decision makers and application architects. The intent is to explain the comprehensive security componentry within z/OS and to show how these techniques and functions are exploited by modern distributed and Internet applications. Both z/OS and the IBM ⓔ® server zSeries™ product family have a rich heritage and significant presence in the evolving computing marketplace. Consequently, this discussion includes some computer security history and projections of the relevant future.
