Fix Recommendation

The IAO will ensure that WRITE and/or greater access to Quest NC-Pass STC data sets is limited to System Programmers and/or Quest NC-Pass’s STC(s) and/or batch user(s) only. UPDATE access can be given to domain level security administrators. READ access can be given to auditors.

The installing Systems Programmer will identify and document the product data sets and categorize them according to who will have update and alter access and if required that all update and allocate access is logged. He will identify if any additional groups have update and/or alter access for specific data sets, and once documented he will work with the IAO to see that they are properly restricted to the ACP (Access Control Program) active on the system.

Data sets to be protected will be:
SYS3.NCPASS.*.PASSCAF
SYS3.NCPASS.*.PASSVSDD

The following commands are provided as a sample for implementing data set controls:

$KEY(SYS3)
NCPASS.-.PASSCAF.- UID(<syspaudt>) R(A) W(A) A(A) E(A)
NCPASS.-.PASSCAF.- UID(<tstcaudt>) R(A) W(A) A(A) E(A)
