Adopting authority enables users to drive the car to the store and back yet stay off the highway. To ensure no one ends up in the ditch, you must know where the keys are at all times.

Adoption of authority is a solution to the problem of having users who need to execute commands that are otherwise forbidden based on their current IBM i authority level.
For example, your helpdesk personnel must have the ability to re-enable user profiles that have been disabled, but you don't want to give them *SECADM special authority and access to the Change User Profile (CHGUSRPRF) command.
KST Software gives users a free taste of its security solution that can monitor individual files—as well as users.

Perhaps I'm overly materialistic, but if there is one word I like over all others, it's "free." For the next three months, IBM i users in certain markets can download and activate KST Software's DataTrigger security program at no charge.
KST is an Israeli company that has a unique take on security: it uses IBM's trigger technology to monitor changes to the database and notify the administrator or security officer through an alert. The technique hasn't gained widespread use largely because of the overhead that triggers place on system resources. With IBM's newer high-performance processors, however, such work is of little consequence nowadays, according to KST.

Written by Robin Tatam
Audits are a way of life in today's regulated world. Whether it's Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), the Payment Card Industry (PCI), or the multitude of other government and industry standards, few organizations escape the reach of one or more of these regulations. Unfortunately, there are few things that drive fear into the heart of IT personnel more than the arrival of an auditor: "What are they going to ask to see?" "Do I have to explain what *JOBCTL means again?" "How can I get all my normal work done when I have to figure out how to report on the very information that will be used to penalize me?"
