Issue/Introduction

IBM recently introduced a new z/OS system integrity function named Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR).

ASLR does *exactly* what the name suggests… it forces z/OS to randomize the starting address of the private area in each address space in order to prevent (or at least discourage) snooping. 

Are there any concerns with Librarian?

Environment

Release : 4.4

Component : Librarian 

Resolution

There are no known problems with Librarian and IBM ASLR
