In this workshop, you learn how to maintain a Resource Access Control Facility (RACF®) database with IBM® Security zSecure Admin and monitor the system with IBM Security zSecure Audit. During hands-on exercises, you act as a RACF security administrator for a fictitious company. In this simulated job role, you learn to define a RACF security environment for a specific department.

You learn to verify the quality and validity of the RACF profiles that you define. Finally, you learn how to interpret and report SMF events that the z/OS system logs during the workshop.
