This IBMAr RedbooksAr publication documents the strength and value of the IBM security strategy with IBM z Systems hardware and software (referred to in this book by the previous product name, IBM System zAr). In an age of increasing security consciousness and more dangerous and advanced persistent threats, System z provides the capabilities to address today's business security challenges. This book explores how System z hardware is designed to provide integrity, process isolation, and cryptographic capability to help address security requirements. We highlight the features of IBM z/OSAr and other operating systems that offer a variety of customizable security elements. We also describe z/OS and other operating systems and additional software that use the building blocks of System z hardware to meet business security needs. We explore these from the perspective of an enterprise security architect and how a modern mainframe must fit into an enterprise security architecture. This book is part of a three-volume series that focuses on guiding principles for optimized mainframe security configuration within a holistic enterprise security architecture. The intended audience includes enterprise security architects, planners, and managers who are interested in exploring how the security design and features of the System z platform, the z/OS operating system, and associated software address current issues, such as data encryption, authentication, authorization, network security, auditing, ease of security administration, and monitoring.Manual tunnels are not commonly implemented. Although simple to establish, manual tunnels are not considered entirely secure because manually configured keys can be compromised easily. Also, with manual tunnels, IPSec keys cannot beanbsp;...
