Effective security management requires flexible analysis and reporting tools. With OS/390 Version 2 Release 8, RACF introduced the RACFICE reports in 'SYS1.SAMPLIB(IRRICE)'. RACFICE used  DFSORT's ICETOOL to create a set of 30+ reports based on the output of the RACF Database Unload Utility (IRRDBU00) and the RACF SMF Unload Utility (IRRADU00). 

Since then, there have been several major enhancements to DFSORT. This package, RACFICE2, demonstrates how those enhancements can be used to do even more with the output of IRRDBU00 and IRRADU00.  

The new reports which can be created are:

In addition, the package contains a set of DFSORT Symbols that define the IRRDBU00 and IRRADU00 fields as documented in the "RACF Macros and Interfaces (SA22-7682)".

The RACFICE tool consists of these files:

You can download these files either by using your browser or by using anonymous file transfer protocol (ftp). From your browser, select "file" and "save as". For anonymous ftp, use the site ftp://public.dhe.ibm.com. RACFICE2 can be found in the directory /eserver/zseries/zos/racf/racfice2/. Full installation instructions are in the racfice2.pdf file.

We welcome your comments and questions on RACFICE2. Please direct them to the RACF-L mailing list. Subscription information for RACF-L can be found from the RACF Discussion List page.
