Protecting tableBASE tables

tableBASE tables can be protected on the library (read and write passwords) and when loaded in-memory (LOCK-LATCH). It is important to note that these passwords offer only limited protection against unauthorized use of tableBASE tables. More formal security can be implemented via user exits and 3rd party measures such as Resource Access Control Facility (RACF), eTrust CA-ACF2 Security for z/OS and eTrust CA-Top Secret Security for z/OS.

In the event that a table password is lost or forgotten, please see Master Password Feature.

tablesONLINE exits provide security at the tables, fields and/or rows levels. For more information, please see the tableBASE Programming Guide.
