Issue/Introduction

How can you implement Top Secret MFA signons or passtickets with applications that dont use a green screen or 3270 terminal interface like a GUI based application?

Environment

Release : 16.0

Component : CA Top Secret for z/OS

Resolution

Support for MFA is dependent on each individual product that uses MFA for signons to support it. Doesnt matter if the application has a green screen type interface or a GUI based interface.

The application must issue the appropriate RACROUTE security call for a MFA signon.

Once the application issues the appropriate security call for a MFA signon, Top Secret or ACF2 will respond to the MFA signon request. He doesnt care what application its is coming from and the type of user interface it is using like 3270 or GUI. All that matters is the MFA signon security call is being done.

Same for passtickets. The application must have the appropriate security calls for passticket signons. Top Secret doesnt care the if its GUI or 3270. As long as the application issues the appropriate security calls for the passticket signon thats all that matters.
