Security Holes/Issues

We are currently on B7332 with SP 13.1 running on an AS400 enterprise
server, using SQL 7.0 database.
I was wondering if anyone had any idea as what possible security issues
there may be and what was/could be done to address them. Any feedback would
be appreciated.

Eric,
Although I amn't a CNC Administrator or a security specialist, I know some security whole. Here are my coins for you:

1.) Disable Fast Path in the user profiles.
2.) Secure P0085 application which pops up when you want to create a new tab in OneWorld Explorer.
2.) Secure P98305 Batch Versions application e.g. preventing access to RDA starting from the Tools menu of OW Explorer.
3.) Secure P91200 application. This APPL pops up when you access RDA in the mentioned mode and choose Report/New in RDA.

Unfortunately I do not know how can you completly secure the acces to RDA from OW Explorer and/or the Report/Open in RDA when somebody started it from the Explorer.

OneWorld is a Swiss Gruyère cheese, plenty of security holes.
OneWorld itself doesn't provide any security at all, it's up to you
to make it a secure product.
AS/400 is very secure if you administer it properly, but...
Your biggest problems come from SQL7 and NT, I suggest you to suscribe
to Microsoft electronic papers on security for these two products.
I don't want do disappoint you but frankly speaking : MS is very weak
on security ...
Have you ever thought why does MSSQL7 cost 1500 u$s and Oracle or
Informix cost more than 50000 u$s?

Sebastian,
While I agree that One World does not come with any security set up, it does come with tools to lock down access to menus, the options on the menus, as well as field and table security. It may take some work but I think the tools are there.
I do agree that sql and nt provide good opportunities for security breaches.

Yes... you're right.
What I meant was that JDE doesn't provide external security (for O.S., DBMS,
WAN links,
terminals, etc.) but does provide a very comprehensive internal security
structure for
its menus, tables, rows, P.O., UBEs once the user logs in to OneWorld.

Eric,

Besides data and application access, also see that you secure the TCP/IP services access to your machines.

Yes, you can call RDA ones from the menu of OW Explorer twice you can start it like .EXE from b7\system folder like the other tools with .EXE behind them e.g. UTB (Universal Table Browser).
Further RDA tool has an "Open" menu selection in it "Report" menu and an other "Save" of course.

RDA gets my vote for the biggest security and data integrity hole. Since some shops use RDA as a user "report writer" tool, they have opened the door to allow nearly any table to be written to. We were very concerned about the data integrity issues involved in letting users write their own batch programs, so we didn't given them RDA but developed a Crystal Reports based solution instead.

My 2 cents,

Larry, you are right.
Some additions:
1.) RDA is not ONLY a Report Writer tool but a Batch Application Designer tool too that means, you can not only read data but you CAN change any accessible data too (Update/Insert/Delete)!!!!!

2.) UTB (Universal Table Browser) is a second security whole when you do not want the data in the database to be public for everybody who can run UTB.

Does anybody know how affects OneWorld Row/Column security the work of UTB?

Hi Zoltan,
UTB pays attention to row security (at least in b7321).

One note on the UTB. I was informed earlier that the UTB does conform to
the JDE security. Therefore, if you have the required row security setup,
UTB should not be an issue. Did this change in the Xe/B733.3 version?

Hi Zoltan...
About your question on how UTB is affected by row/column security, I can
tell you that if for example you secure the Address Number (AN8) for a user
o group a range of data, lets say - 1 to 4000 - when the user works with
UTB, he will not see the registries containing the range of data you
secured...

Just my little contribution. :)

These may have already been listed.

- If you can create a UBE you can gain access to your master password in
Unix or NT. Have not tried in AS400 yet.

- FastPath on terminal server gives the user access to a desktop on terminal
server.

Hi John,
I suppose it did not change but I can not try it because I haven't currently access to any roe secured XE installation.

I would have to say that being able to run any OW Program, INI or PC Program
from the Fast Path is much more of a problem. You do not have to specify
these in 00/FP for this undocumented feature to work. The only way to
prevent this, other than turning off fast path, is to make an entry in 00/FP
and point it to a menu that says "don't do this". Otherwise, you have no
control over what version is used in running the program.
