Securing Database Resources

Any user has the ability to access any database until it is secured. You can secure a database only by securing database resources. You can secure online access to databases at the task level, although this would involve securing the OCF task (online Command Facility) and other tasks. However, task security does not secure databases from batch access.

Database Security
Any user has the ability to access any database until it is secured. You can secure a database only by securing database resources. You can secure online access to databases at the task level, although this would involve securing the OCF task (online Command Facility) and other tasks. However, task security does not secure databases from batch access.
Even if the configuration of your external security system protects the database against local mode access, the database would not be protected from batch access through the central version unless the database is secured through CA IDMS centralized security.
Dictionaries and User catalog
The system dictionary, application dictionaries, and the user catalog are databases. If internal security is specified for one or more global resources, the user catalog contains security definitions. If internal security is specified for one or more database resources, the system dictionary contains security definitions, as does the application dictionary if the SQL Option is installed.
To secure dictionaries and the user catalog, you must secure database resources as described in this section.
