We have a requirement when obtaining software and need IBM to provide an answer around the following requirement:
We need to be able to test the source and integrity of the software being installed in the HSD environments. In my experience, this is the case for AIX and RHEL. I think RHEL uses gpg signatures, which are checked by the rpm install process (with the appropriate public keys in the local repository).
Could you tell us if Connect:Direct goes through the standard signature verification process?
For the Connect:Direct Secure Plus software, we’ll need to do some extra handling. All software that is used has to be approved by the Corporate Information Security validation process. We have an ingress that loosely is:
• SME for tool and/or agent obtains a digitally-signed agent from vendor
o Digital signature + checksum = Best
o Digital signature only = Nice
o Checksum only = Okay
How will this idea be used?
To validate authenticity of downloaded software, this is a new requirement for the bank.
