IFS Security—Don't Leave Your Server Vulnerable

Despite its importance, IFS security remains a mystery to many IBM i admins


Experts agree that one of the most overlooked areas of IBM i security is the Integrated File System. Available since V3R1, the IFS provides access for users carrying nothing more than a user profile and password, so it better be secure!

  • Why do we care about the IFS?
  • Permissions versus Authority
  • Root folder access
