General security system values
This topic introduces the general system values that you can use to control security on your IBM® i operating system.
General security system values allow you to set security function to support the decisions you made when developing your security policy. For example, in your security policy you state that systems containing confidential information, such as customer accounts or payroll inventories, need a stricter level of security than systems used for testing applications that are developed within your company. You can then plan and set a security level on these systems that corresponds with the decisions you made while developing your security policy.
