Security at Installation
The RHDCSRTT module that is provided with the CA IDMS installation software contains an initialized entry for each resource that is defined by CA IDMS.
The initial security option for each resource is
OFF
, which indicates that at installation, security is not enforcement through CA IDMS centralized security. Any user can create security definitions and grant privileges.
Security information is stored in the security databases but has no effect until security is activated. Furthermore, the SVCNUM parameter is set to the SVC number that is specified in the installation parameters.
The identifier of the CA IDMS installer is recorded as the owner of the demonstration database schemas in the schema definitions. If security for the DB resource is activated after installation, schema ownership affects security processing.
Preserving the Initialized RHDCSRTT
You should preserve a secure copy of the initialized RHDCSRTT module that is provided at installation. This ensures that after you activate security, you can turn it off again by using the initialized RHDCSRTT module.
To preserve the initialized RHDCSRTT, use one of the following options:
  • Create a backup copy of the initialized RHDCSRTT module that is provided in the installed CA IDMS load library. Store the backup copy in a secure load library and restore it to the CA IDMS installed load library if needed.
  • Link your modified SRTT into a different load library during initial testing. To activate security, concatenate the load library containing the new SRTT with the CA IDMS load library. To deactivate security, remove the load library containing the new SRTT from the STEPLIB/CDMSLIB concatenation, or rename the RHDCSRTT load module.
You can display or recreate the SRTT table using the batch program—
IDMSSRTD
. IDMSSRTD recreates the SRTT definition syntax from the existing load module.
