Security Traces

Support uses a security trace to debug security problems. The trace shows:

  • Fields from the security control block
  • Messages
  • Return codes from the security system itself such as IBM® RACF, CA-TOP SECRET, and ACF2
  • Data set names, if verifying data sets
  • Userids (passwords will not displayed as encrypted or plain text)
Note: To prevent a remote node's security from discovering and then using Signon dummy passwords to gain access to a primary node, you can use the initialization parameter, REMOTE.DUMMY.PASSWORD = [ YES | INTERNAL ]. REMOTE.DUMMY.PASSWORD only works when using the STAGE1 and STAGE 2 SECURITY exits.
