Issue/Introduction

Hello CA,

We applied IBM security maintenance, sourceid(secint), then discovered some ACF2 maintenance got applied as well; for example, SO14108. This did not make sense to me so I listed the info for the ptfs and saw this:

SOURCEID CAP2008    
         ORD00994   
         PRP        
         SECINT     
APPID    MVSSCD     

Is CA now using SOURCEID(SECINT)? If so, when did it start? And finally, how do we get notified? IBM sends us a list of securiy ptfs and we run a job to assign the security tag so I just need to understand the CA process.

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

Yes, ACF2 is now using the SOURCEID(SECINT) field in PTFs.

It started with PTF SO14108.

As of right now there is not a way to notify about SOURCEID(SECINT). Working on a way to notify customers. At https://support.broadcom.com/mainframe-software and select 'MY TOOLS' dropdown select the is a subscription section:

There will be a list of products, and select what notifications are wanted for each product. Currently working on adding SOURCEID(SECINT) to the Security Advisories notifications.
