Issue/Introduction

If an acid has NOPW will it bypass password checking as well as passticket generation?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

Password processing is done first and if NOPW is on the acid then no further checking will be done; so, no passticket will be generated.  An acid with NOPW will 'bypass' all types of password checking(passwords, passphrases and passtickets).
