Rochester Initiative is pleased to announce a no-charge online resource that will help you understand how to configure and work with iSeries / i5 Web Security. This fully illustrated, step-by-step web site shows you how to perform the following configuration activities for your iSeries / i5 server:

• Configure an HTTP Server (powered by Apache)

• Start, stop and control the HTTP Server

• Set directory permissions so that you can serve static and dynamic web content from the IFS

• Verify that essential OS/400 user profiles have correct authorizations for the HTTP Server

• Configure authentication for web users using OS/400 user profiles, validation lists or LDAP entries

• Complete instructions on how to set up, maintain and use validation lists and group files

• How to get started with the LDAP server and use the IBM Directory Management Tool

• How to create a Digital Certificate Authority on your iSeries / i5 and install the CA certificate in a web browser

• How to create Digital Certificates on your iSeries / i5

There are dozens of tips, techniques and charts in this resource that will help you quickly get started with web security and understand how to work with the configuration programs. Each important configuration option is accompanied by an illustration of the exact screen where you work with the option, so there's no more guessing about where the option is located.

An especially useful feature of iSeries / i5 Web Security Step-by-Step is its extensive use of hyperlinking. As you've probably experienced, when you work through most documentation, you are referred to prerequisite activities. Rather than simply tell you about a prerequisite, this online resource lets you simply click directly to the required information.
