Fix Recommendation

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. The "Trigger" resources i.e., $$SECxxx (xxx is unique to the product) are defined in the FACILITY resource class


(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-O 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:

$key($$ctoaop) type(ioa)
- uid(<operaudt>) log
- uid(<pcspaudt>) log
- uid(<prodaudt>) log
- uid(<syspaudt>) log
- uid(*) prevent

Refer to the following report produced by the ACF2 Data Collection and Data Set and Resource Data Collection:

- SENSITVE.RPT(ZCTO0020)
- ACF2CMDS.RPT(RESOURCE) – Alternate report

Automated Analysis
Refer to the following report produced by the Data Set and Resource Data Collection:

- PDI(ZCTO0020)

Verify that the accesses to resources and/or generic equivalent are properly restricted according to the requirements specified in BMC CONTROL-O 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 "Trigger" resources i.e., $$SECxxx (xxx is unique to the product) are defined in the FACILITY resource class


___ 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.
