Our January meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 8th at 11:00 a.m. at the Murray City Offices (City Council Chambers), 5025 South State Street. This will be a two-hour session with a free pizza lunch break in the middle.
Our meeting topic will be Developing Secure Applications. Although your IBM i server is one of the most securable platforms available, the protection of critical data is often undermined by weak security design at the application level.
This session will cover the main considerations that a programmer should be aware of as they design their applications:
- Object ownership
- Public and private authorities
- Adopted authority
- Command line permission
- Client-server considerations
Our discussion will include why auditors are often deemed to be a programmer’s nemesis, and what it is that they really need from us.
Our speaker will be Robin Tatam, Director of Security Technologies for PowerTech and a COMMON subject matter expert (SME) for security. As an award-winning speaker on security topics, Robin has been interviewed and quoted by industry magazines and has published numerous trade articles. He is also co-author of IBM’s Redbook publication on IBM i Data Encryption. Robin can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
