Securing z/OS FTP Transmissions


Presentation

FTP is a readily available, convenient, and inexpensive technology to transfer files and data sets between z/OS and a virtually unlimited number of other operating system platforms.  This session will explore a wide range of aspects related to how FTP works on z/OS with a focus on how you can secure both the FTP environment itself and the individual data transfers that z/OS FTP participates in both as a client and as a server.  We will discuss the following topics in this session:
 
* Why can FTP be so vulnerable?
* Identify problems & solutions
* Review the pros & cons of each solution
* Review when & where to deploy each solution
* Time permitting, a live demo for one of the solutions reviewed
