WHERE IBM i SECURITY
STANDS TODAY


Over 1700 IBM i servers have participated in the State of IBM i Security Study since its launch in 2004.

The 10th anniversary edition includes 100+ IBM i servers from industries across the globe, providing invaluable insight into:

  • Top IBM i Security Exposures
  • 6 Dangerous IBM i Configuration Defaults
  • Most Common Lapses in IBM i Compliance

The stomach-turning results show that the worst exposures are due to poor configuration or lax administration.

iSeries Security Tips for Data Access

Too Many Open Doors



We used *PUBLIC access rights to libraries to measure how accessible IBM i data is for end users and found:

  • 57% of libraries still use the shipped default level *CHANGE

  • 92% of libraries are accessible with
    only an id and password

Even worse, the objects inside often have
the same or less authority than the libraries themselves.

iSeries Security Tips for Special Authorities

Over-Privileged Users



Overwhelmingly, the IBM i servers in this sample have too many powerful users:

  • Only 3 systems in the survey had less than 10 users with *ALLOBJ authority

  • Over 14% of users can access any spooled file without restriction

Besides causing serious damage, the abuse of special authorities is checked in all standard
IBM i audits.
