The resource ABSTRACT(AC1) is not checked when linkage editor SYSLMOD is a PDSE. In contrast, if SYSLMOD addresses a PDS, ABSTRACT(AC1) is correctly checked.
What is the cause of this?
z/OS use the STOW SVC to update a PDS directory and use DESERV to update a PDSE directory. Top Secret has a STOW SVC intercept that allows us to screen for linkage editor updates when the AC1 value is used and drive the security authorization.
Release : 16.0
Component : Top Secret for z/OS
Top Secret does not intercept the DESERV process as of now, so there is currently no equivalent security for PDSE.
