This document covers the following topics:
This section describes the steps for installing EntireX Security for Broker stubs under z/VSE.
The delivered phases
linked for use with internal security, which requires an application to use ACI
version 8 or above. If you are running your application at ACI version 7 or
below, the steps above are required to install EntireX Security for the Broker
stubs in all environments where applications execute. These steps are not required if you are
running your application at ACI version 8 or above.
To enable external security, relink the stub modules
BKIMC.PHASE (and your application if it does not

Additionally include the following objects:
The following job control is delivered and may be used for relinking the various stub modules:
Additionally, a detailed description of how to link the stubs and your application can be found under Administering Broker Stubs under z/VSE.
Rename the phase
SECUEXI0.PHASE in library EXX960 to
CICSDEF.J in sublibrary EXP960. This will create all relevant CSD entries for the CICS Socket Listener. This job:
installs the load modules
creates the following CICS CSD definitions:
program definitions for the load modules

transaction XRFE, which is the standard transaction name that can be maintained with the RPC Server or Adapter configuration.
If you need to change this CSD entry default, you also need to adapt the configuration parameter
CICS transaction ID. More information:

To run the CICS programs in a separate user transaction
Define your user transaction ID in the RPC Server for CICS Socket Listener, for example:

Create the CSD for the user transaction ID.
In this CSD definition, specify
