Group and object authority with level 20 security

ISeries security expert Carol Woodbury discusses group and object authority on security level 20.

Are group and object authorities available at level 20 security?
Yes, all i5/OS security options, including group profiles and granting object authorities, are available at security level 20. The authority-checking algorithm is exactly the same at all security levels. It may not look like it, but that's because, by default, when a profile is created at level 20, it is created with *ALLOBJ special authority. But you can remove this special authority from users and then use private authorities or set objects' *PUBLIC authority to *EXCLUDE, etc.
