Issue/Introduction

What time zone is used to generate passtickets in Top Secret?  

The RACF security subsystem uses UTC.  

 

 

 

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

PassTickets are created with a UTC timestamp.  Any systems sharing tickets must have UTC (GMT) set to the same value.  All systems should then have their own local time determined via the correct local time zone offset from UTC.
