This advanced RACF training course gives you a powerful understanding of howto use the advanced features of RACF, to support RACF with UNIX, TCP/IP, the Firewall, and the z/OS WorldWide Web Server. This course will get you ready to deal with RACF and Sysplex, as well as digital certificates and cross-platform security with Single Signon. It covers RACF on z/OS with the MVS operating system.
You will learn to use RACF to control JES, SDSF, VTAM, APPC, OMVS or USS ("UNIX under MVS"), TCP/IP, Sysplex, the Message Queue Manager, the Websphere Web Server, and MVS. You will get clear explanations of how these system software components work, how they work with RACF, and how you can use RACF to control them. You will learn how RACF interfaces with other software components to provide your installation the most comprehensive practical protection possible.
This course shows you how to design RACF exits, how to analyze the structure of the RACF dataset, and how to tune RACF for best performance. You will learn how to plan, implement, and use RRSF, the RACF Remote Sharing Facility (which lets you synchronize passwords and RACF commands between RACF databases).
This course will show you how to use the most sophisticated and advanced features of RACF. While you do not need to be a system programmer or technician, you will want a solid understanding of RACF basics to get the most out of this course. This course is the logical follow-on to HG04: Effective RACF Administration.
The 400+ page reference manual contains diagrams, worksheets, and valuable reference material not available anywhere else.
