RSA SecuID Agent for IBM i

  • The General server (DTIGEN) has been updated to allow for the processing of several requests at the same time.
  • Changes have been made to help protect against vulnerability scanning of active/open communication ports used by SecurID Agent's server jobs. These function even when the scanning is performed internally, against the IBM i system environment. Job Management has been introduced to help ensure that each of SecurID Agent's configured servers have an active job whenever the ACEDTI subsystem is active. Activity related to Job Management is recorded within the Activity Journal, the default being @ACE/ACEACTJRN. The associated journal entries have 'Journal Entry Type' of 'JB' and the 'Entry Specific Data' begins with a Message Id in the range MLT0018 - MLT0022. The message text is located within Message File @ACE/SDIMSGF01.
    • The General Server job, ACEDTIDS04 is now started as a pre-start job within the ACEDTI subsystem.

  • When the software is installed or upgraded, the General Server (DTIGEN) is added to the list of Products as seen within 'Work with TCP/IP Connections,' if it does not exist already. Previously, the administrator had to add the correct Product after installation or upgrade. The associated Product RMTSDIAUT is also added if it does not exist, which is required for Remote Authentication.
  • When the software is installed or upgraded, the SecurID Authentication Product SECURID is added to the list of Products, as seen within 'Work with TCP/IP Connections.' Previously, the administrator was required to add the correct Product after the installation or upgrade.

Other Fixes
  • Syntax errors causing a failure to authenticate remotely to IBM i systems across different subnets have been corrected.
