Information Security
Each application is responsible for enforcing authorization to content and functionality within the application. Access
Manager and RACF provide authorization to the applications as a whole by applying policies that have been defined
for the application’s GTL to the user data. For example, the policy for the MARx UI requires that a user have either a
Submitter or a Representative plan Role attribute or that a user requires access to a particular dataset.
Once the user has been authorized through Access Manager, the user is also defined in the IBM Sterling B2B
Integrator Suite (formerly Gentran, also known as SI) or the Managed File Transfer Internet Server (MFT IS)
applications or through RACF that the user has dataset access to manage file access for Connect:Direct (C:D) or
Managed File Transfer Platform Server (MFT PS).
User Provisioning
IACS/System ID’s are required for SI and MFT IS. These ID’s are registered to individuals and expire every 60 days.
Any issues related to your account or password, please contact the CMS IT Service Desk at 1-800-562-1963 or 410786-2580 and request a trouble ticket to be opened for the IACS group.
RACF
The CMS business partners who use C:D to transmit files directly to the mainframe environment in the CMS data
center will be required to specify a Secure Point of Entry (SPOE) in their C:D processes. This SPOE will be
automatically converted to a CMS RACF user ID that will be used to authenticate the user.
The CMS business partners who use MFT Platform Server to transmit files directly to the mainframe environment in
the CMS data center will be required to specify a remote user and password in their MFT processes. Typically,
the remote user and password is stored encrypted on the remote node in a MFT initiator user profile. The CMS MFT
Platform Server will convert the remote user ID and password to a CMS RACF user ID using encrypted MFT

responder user profiles. This CMS RACF user ID will be used for user authentication and to determine the user’s
authorization to files.
SSH keys or x.509 Certificates
The CMS business partners, who connect to the second instance of MFT Internet Server, must authenticate using an
SSH2 key or an x.509 certificate.
Password Exchanges
For SSH keys and account passwords, if your site has a process for notifying the EFT group for an expiring password,
please provide a contact and the procedure documentation. The Partner Server document will need to be updated and
resubmitted to the EFT group.
