Mapping of a role in a JWT token to a technical user ID in SAF/RACF

As of today only WebSphere Liberty on z/OS and z/OS Connect EE (which is also based on WebSphere Liberty on z/OS) can only map the distributed user ID in a JWT token to a mainframe user ID in SAF/RACF. This is a problem when there is no equivalent...

IDEA Fixpack Augmentation – Priority 1 The recommendation is to augment the remediation artifact to include the entire history of the available fixpacks that are applicable to a vulnerability which is not done today. The current view on the glass reflects IBM’s design decision taken from a security standpoint, that WSA will promote the latest fixpack as a best practice and will most likely remain as the default choice. Kaiser can work with the API approach to install fixpacks that are not at the latest level via API customization but it would be nice to have it in the UI visibility.

As an example of why this approach would be useful, consider Kaiser’s current approach offers developers the choice of n-1, n-2, and current fixpack version. A view on the glass that will show if eight of ten CVE’s are fixed in one fixpack, that K...
