    Vuln Rule Version CCI Severity Title Description Status Finding Details Comments
    SV-224729r520291_rule ZCIC0010 CCI-001499 MEDIUM CICS system data sets are not properly protected. CICS is a transaction-processing product that provides programmers with the facilities to develop interactive applications. Unauthorized access to CICS system data sets (i.e., product, security, and application libraries) could result in the compromise of
    SV-224730r520294_rule ZCIC0020 CCI-000213 MEDIUM Sensitive CICS transactions are not protected in accordance with security requirements. Sensitive CICS transactions offer the ability to circumvent transaction level controls for accessing resources under CICS. These transactions must be protected so that only authorized users can access them. Unauthorized use can result in the compromise
    SV-224731r520297_rule ZCIC0030 CCI-000366 MEDIUM CICS System Initialization Table (SIT) parameter values must be specified in accordance with proper security requirements. The CICS SIT is used to define system operation and configuration parameters of a CICS system. Several of these parameters control the security within a CICS region. Failure to code the appropriate values could result in unexpected operations and degrad
    SV-224732r520300_rule ZCIC0040 CCI-000764 MEDIUM CICS region logonid(s) must be defined and/or controlled in accordance with the security requirements. CICS is a transaction-processing product that provides programmers with the facilities to develop interactive applications. Improperly defined or controlled CICS userids (i.e., region, default, and terminal users) may provide an exposure and vulnerability
    SV-224733r520303_rule ZCIC0041 CCI-000764 MEDIUM CICS default logonid(s) must be defined and/or controlled in accordance with the security requirements. CICS is a transaction-processing product that provides programmers with the facilities to develop interactive applications. Improperly defined or controlled CICS userids (i.e., region, default, and terminal users) may provide an exposure and vulnerability
    SV-224734r520306_rule ZCIC0042 CCI-000057 MEDIUM CICS logonid(s) must be configured with proper timeout and signon limits. CICS is a transaction-processing product that provides programmers with the facilities to develop interactive applications. Improperly defined or controlled CICS userids (i.e., region, default, and terminal users) may provide an exposure and vulnerability
    SV-224735r520309_rule ZCICT021 CCI-000035 MEDIUM IBM CICS Transaction Server SPI command resources must be properly defined and protected. IBM CICS Transaction Server can run with sensitive system privileges, and potentially can circumvent system controls. Failure to properly control access to product resources could result in the compromise of the operating system environment, and compromi
    SV-224736r520312_rule ZCICT041 CCI-000213 MEDIUM CICS userids are not defined and/or controlled in accordance with proper security requirements. CICS is a transaction-processing product that provides programmers with the facilities to develop interactive applications. Improperly defined or controlled CICS userids (i.e., region, default, and terminal users) may provide an exposure and vulnerability
    SV-224737r520315_rule ZCICT050 CCI-000366 MEDIUM Control options for the Top Secret CICS facilities must meet minimum requirements. TSS CICS facilities define the security controls in effect for CICS regions. Failure to code the appropriate values could result in degraded security. This exposure may result in unauthorized access impacting the confidentiality, integrity, and availabi
