Leverage Your Security Expertise in IBM ® System z ™ Mainframe Environments

For over 40 years, the IBM mainframe has been the backbone of the world's largest enterprises. If you're coming to the IBM System z mainframe platform from UNIX ®, Linux ®, or Windows ®, you need practical guidance on leveraging its unique security capabilities. Now, IBM experts have written the first authoritative book on mainframe security specifically designed to build on your experience in other environments.

Even if you've never logged onto a mainframe before, this book will teach you how to run today's z/OS ® operating system command line and ISPF toolset and use them to efficiently perform every significant security administration task. Don't have a mainframe available for practice? The book contains step-by-step videos walking you through dozens of key techniques. Simply log in and register your book at to gain access to these videos.

The authors illuminate the mainframe's security model and call special attention to z/OS security techniques that differ from UNIX, Linux, and Windows. They thoroughly introduce IBM's powerful Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) security subsystem and demonstrate how mainframe security integrates into your enterprise-wide IT security infrastructure. If you're an experienced system administrator or security professional, there's no faster way to extend your expertise into "big iron" environments.
