SafeNet/i Release 11 Updates:

SafeNet/i Release 10 Updates:

SafeNet/i Release 9 Updates:

SafeNet/400 Release 8 Updates:


Release 11 Updates:

New release now available.

Kisco announced a new release of SafeNet/i today, Release 11. The new release features new TCPIP socket access controls along with a redesigned user interface that brings all rules together in a single display. Please review the website for more details, including the press release section.


Release 10 Updates:

Two new support commands added to SafeNet/i.

Two new commands have been added to SafeNet/i that customers can use at their discretion.

The new LOGTOSAFE command can be used to create custom log entries in the SafeNet/i Transaction History file. This allows customers to add content to the Transaction History of their own authorship. This can help especially when the customer is also using the interface to IBM's QRadar software.

The new SNIRESYNC command can be used by customers for force reindexing of user indexes and user spaces when control files use by SafeNet/i are updated by a process other than the menu options or web interface provided in SafeNet/i. This can happen when files are updated on one system and then automatically transferred to another system that is also running SafeNet/i.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1049. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.)


Utilization Reports by Group Profile.

When running the utilization reports from the SN4 menu, you can now specify a single Group Profile as a selection and all activity for that profile will then be included in the utilization report.

Also included in this update, all activate and de-activate processes in SafeNet/i are now being logged to the Transaction History file.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1046. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.)


Utilization Reports *OUTFILE option enhanced.

When running the utilization reports from the SN4 menu, a new option has now been added when you specify to create an *OUTFILE rather than a printed report. The new option will allow you to either *ADD records to a pre-existing file or *REPLACE records in the file. Using this option, multiple reports and be run on selected users to build up a comprehensive database for your reporting.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1044. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.)


User exit parameters updated for the FTP Logon point.

The optional user exit program for the FTP Logon point has been changed so that the parameters passed match those used by the IBM OS exit point. See the PTF documentation for more details. If a customer has a user exit registered to the FTP Logon point through SafeNet/i, advance planning for this change is required.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1042. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1042. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.)


Logging of profile swap activity added.

SafeNet/i has now been updated to log user profile swap activity. Prior to this update, customers had to verify swap information using the system security audit journal. Now, swap activity will be logged in the SafeNet/i Transaction History file and can be viewed and reported.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1041. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us.

(Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.)


Performance Improvements, FTP Logon change, Super-User Lookup change, IPv6 address resolution change.

With this release update, SafeNet/i includes the following changes:

  1. Several performance improvements have been implemented that will help across all applications by implementing user spaces and user indexes to replace traditional file I/O when doing security authentication processing.
  2. The FTP logon process can now optionally log user profile activity in the profile information on the system.
  3. The Super-User authentication process has been streamlined to improve performance.
  4. The IPv6 network address process has been streamlined to improve performance.

This update is available via the Internet as Release 10.40. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this upgrade by just requesting it from us. It is NOT available as a PTF due to the complexity of the change. To request the upgrade, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. New customers ordering Release 10.40 or higher will have this new feature included.


Support added for IPv6.

With this release update, SafeNet/i can now capture and report network activity made using the IPv6 Internet protocol for device addressing.

New customers ordering Release 10.39 or higher will have this new feature included.


New SQL verb support added & more.

The SQL verb "MERGE INTO" is now supported by SafeNet/i.

In addition, the core object authorization routines have been recoded and optimized to improve performance. The result is even better performance overall for SafeNet/i and better storage use efficiency.

This update is available via the Internet as Release 10.35. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this upgrade by just requesting it from us. It is NOT available as a PTF due to the complexity of the change. To request the upgrade, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. New customers ordering Release 10.35 or higher will have this new feature included.


Three significant enhancements added to SafeNet/i.

Three major enhancements have been added to SafeNet/i with this announcement.

First, SafeNet/i now supports context sensitive source IP address access controls. SafeNet/i has always supported source IP address controls for accessing by Telnet and FTP. With this change, this control is extended out to all server functions where the source IP address is available, which means almost all of the security related exit points. And, these controls can be implemented by user profile.

Using this feature, a user profile might be granted access to the system for FTP, but denied access for ODBC from a given source IP address (or IP address range). This will allow customers, for example, to limit ODBC connections to users when they are on site and deny similar access when they are working remotely.

The second enhancement implemented today is that remote Telnet users can now be restricted to only those users who are using an SSL protected connection. For customers using SSL for Telnet sessions, this can guarantee that those 5250 data streams are secure.

The third enhancement is that a new type of SafeNet/i Administrator account is now supported. This new Administrator function is a "read only" admin who can check and review security settings in SafeNet/i but is not permitted to make any changes. This is helpful when going through a security audit and will allow an auditor to review settings without letting them make any changes, accidental or otherwise.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1025. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.)


SSL status captured on Telnet connections.

At the request of a customer, we have added additional data about Telnet connections to the Transaction History file, including the SSL status of the connection. Initially, this information is only being displayed using the On-Line Transaction Tester process.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1019. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.) New customers ordering Release 10.19 or higher will have this new feature included.


New report command added.

A new report, Print ALL Usage Reports (PRTSNUSG) has been added to SafeNet/i. This will let you run all usage reports for selected profiles which can be helpful in checking to see exactly how a profile is being used on your system.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1016. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.) New customers ordering Release 10.16 or higher will have this new feature included.


New transaction testing options added.

At the request of a customer, we have added two new transaction testing options to SafeNet/i.

First, you can now set up a set of rules under the new special user profile of *TESTUSER. Then, using the On-Line Transaction Testing feature already built into SafeNet/i, you can test a set of transactions against this special user profile by asking the tester to do a profile swap with *TESTUSER. This will allow you to test rules changes safely before actually implementing them. The Copy SafeNet User command (CPYSNUSR) has been updated to allow you to copy a set of rules for a given user into *TESTUSER and then, when you are done, to copy the updated rules back to the live user profile.

The second testing change that has been implemented is that the Auto Enrollment reports for each server function (using the PRTxxxUSG commands) have all been updated so that you can test failing transactions. Using this feature, you can retest a failed transaction and discover all possible rules violations, not just the first one found through normal transaction testing.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1015. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.) New customers ordering Release 10.15 or higher will have this new feature included.


Several major enhancements implemented - see details.

This update includes the following enhancement to SafeNet/i Release 10:

  1. SafeNet/i can now be fully integrated into IBM's QRadar family of products. The new interface is now documented in a separate set of user instructions available via download from the SafeNet/i website.
  2. Customers can now select the sequence used by SafeNet/i when performing security authorization lookups. Multiple search sequences are now available.
  3. Path requests for QSYS.LIB objects are now standardized.
  4. The various PRTxxxUSG commands (including PRTSECRPT) can now be run against any archive library file.
  5. New performance options are now available when running the SafeNet/i log file purge process (STRPRGARC).
  6. Profile swapping has been enhanced to allow selection of a swap profile based on the server being accessed.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1011. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page. (Note: You must be current on all prior Release 10 PTFs before you can install this change.) New customers ordering Release 10.11 or higher will have this new feature included.


Support for integration with SAP *SQL exit point registration.

Customers who run SAP on their IBM i platform have reported a conflict with the *SQL exit point when the SAP exit program is registered there. When this happens, SafeNet/i sees the SAP exit program and does not register the appropriate SafeNet/i program, flagging the point as level 5. Since the SAP exit point does not provide security features and controls, these customers will want to have SafeNet/i work when the SAP exit program is registered.

SafeNet/i has been upgrade to accomodate this change. Detailed instructions are now included telling our SAP customers how to configure this to use both the SAP exit program and the SafeNet/i exit controls for security.

This update is available via the Internet as a PTF package PCPTF1009. Registered customers of SafeNet/i can obtain this PTF as an E-mail attached file by just requesting it from us. Instructions for installing the PTF will be provided along with the file. To request the PTF, click on the E-mail link at the start of this page.

New restriction added when starting the logging process.

Effective date: 08/24/2012 - Release 9.06

When the SafeNet/i transaction history purge process runs, it normally shuts down the SafeNet/i logging process and then restarts it at the exact right point in time. In some shops, when someone notices that the logging process is not active, they try to start it while the purge is still active. As of this release, the start logging command will not work if the purge is running. This will help avoid conflict errors.

Extra security option added for Transaction History File.

Effective date: 05/19/2010 - Release 8.83

A new option for imposing extra security on the SafeNet/400 Transaction History file has been added to prevent anyone from altering the file. The default security configuration for this file (named TRAPOD in library PCSECDTA) has the file secured by the SAFENET authorization list. As such, the only users who have full access to the file are SafeNet/400 Administrators plus anyone else with all object (*ALLOBJ) authority. Normally, this should be sufficient security since all of these users fall into the category of security officers.

Some customers, however, need an extra level of security for this file in order to satisfy strict audit requirements. For these customers, we have implemented the SETTRAP command which can activate additional security for the TRAPOD file. Using the command can toggle this security on and off.

Transaction History Purge process improved.

Effective date: 10/09/2009 - Release 8.70

Two improvements have been made to the Transaction History File (TRAPOD) purge process. With this release change, every time a purge is run, a special audit record will be written to the Transaction History File to note that the purge was run. Also, the purge criteria now takes the time of day into account when running the purge. So, if a purge is run to keep the last 2 days of history on file, for example, the two day period will be up to the time when the purge was started.
