The NMSAF solution is built around the partial security exit facility.
Your product provides the security exit with the ability to supply the following information for each user:
  • A security correlator -- This correlator is typically used to anchor useful control blocks (such as an ACEE).
  • A UTOKEN pointer -- This pointer (if used) must point to a valid SAF UTOKEN that your product region can use.
Source for the NMSAF exit is
not
supplied. However, to allow you to write other exits that can take advantage of the user information, part of the security correlator information is made public.
For example, you can write an NCLEX01 exit that performs resource checking using the ACEE associated with a user.
The NMSAF solution also allows you to set various global options by using the USER
xxx
options in the SXCTL file.
