We've all heard the names of the moving components: private, *PUBLIC, authorization lists and adoption; but it's a rarity to find people that truly understand the full and accurate purpose of these elements and how to combine them into a security plan.  This session provides valuable insight to introduce you to the pro's and con's of this 'gold standard' in IBM i security.  

This session will define key security concepts that comprise Object Level Security along with a reveal of a few of its limitations.  Understand how OLS complements other security initiatives and discover that OLS is far less scary than you may have seen in the movies. Walk away with a deeper respect for IBM i security and a highly-relevant new skill:

  • *ALLOBJ authority
  • *PUBLIC authority
  • Private authority
  • Object permissions
  • Adopted authority
