New IBM Redbook on IBM i v6.1 security

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

The IBM i OS (previously i5/OS) is known as one of the more secure operating platforms, but that doesn’t prevent users running the System i from suffering security lapses. Most of these lapses happen not because of the security technology on the platform, but often because the people running the platform aren’t aware of all the security technology available.

A new IBM Redbook is out that could help that problem: Security Guide for IBM i v6.1. The 426-page book is available online and tackles topics such as extended password rules, networking security improvements, and DB2 column encryption.
