The Life of an ACEE


Presentation

The accessor environment element (ACEE) is the foundational z/OS security control block as practically every security decision made in z/OS references it. When are they created? Who gets to create them? Where are they kept? What is in them? Who gets to update them? How are they deleted? Are there system tuning options that affect them? These mysteries and many others will be revealed!
