Security guide for IBM System i operating system version 6.1

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

The IBM security guide Redbook for IBM i V6.1 is now available in draft form.

The focus is on the new security features of the System i operating system, previously called i5/OS. Those new features include:

  • Extended password rules
  • Encrypted disk data within a user Auxiliary Storage Pool (ASP)
  • Tape data save and restore encryption under control of the Backup Recovery and Media Services for i5/OS
  • Greater control of SSL encryption rules and expanded IP intrusion detection protection and actions

The 506-page Redbook (yup, 506) has 17 chapters on topics such as cryptographic support, security monitoring, and TCP/IP security.
