The article reports on the assurance of security applications on IBM mainframes. IBM has aggressively evolved and enhanced their system in recent years. They built their applications on this solid Operating System design, MVS - the predecessor to z/OS and OS/390. These include common authentication and access control layer. Other IBM's mainframe security efforts include Resource Access Control Facility (RACF) and z/OS Unix with Unix System Services. It also embraced standards from a number of sources that include International Organization for Standardization (ISO), American National Standards Institute (ANSI), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Common Criteria.
