Tomcat Security and SAF RACF

Post by ArChrisCol » Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:06 am

Hello,

When i browse the page bellow :

http://dovetail.com/docs/misc/saf.html

And I want to download saf_realm.zip ( Chap 7.) , I don’t found this file.

Thank you for help me

PS : I use Tomcat 9 and I want to secure this application server with RACF because the instance is on ZOS/USS

If you install the latest release of our z/OS Tomcat package from the above page, you will get our Tomcat Saf Realm code in <tomcat_home>/lib/zos-tomcat.jar:

/u/kirk/tomcat/lib> jar tf zos-tomcat.jar
META-INF/
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF
com/
com/dovetail/
com/dovetail/zos/
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/Role.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafEntry.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafLifecycleListener.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafPrincipal.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafRealm.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafRoleDatabase$RoleCreationFactory.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafRoleDatabase.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafRoleDatabaseFactory.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/SafRoleDatabaseMBean.class
com/dovetail/zos/tomcat/mbeans-descriptors.xml

Note: we have not ported / built our z/OS Tomcat distribution with Tomcat 9, so we cannot say whether this code will work.
We strongly suggest that you first get our Tomcat 8 distribution working (as is) before trying to port it yourself to Tomcat 9.
