Hello, I am new to iSeries and OS/400. Here is my question: Let's say in a level 30 security environment, user access is controlled through a menu, which does not alow them to access any sensitive objects. But a number of sensitive objects have been assigned *ALL authority for *PUBLIC. Can these users somehow still have access to those sensitive objects because of the *ALL for *PUBLIC authority assigned to them, or would that be impossible due to their menu access?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

That would depend on your menus and whether the user has access to a command line or not. If your menus don’t use the objects and your users don’t have access to a command line then your users cannot get access to them.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    If you are running TCP/IP, you also need to think about iSeries Access data transfer, ODBC and FTP.

    We use both. There is always some one in every organization that knows just enough about SQL or AS/400 Query to be dangerous.
