Session Management in Mainframe
This paper proposes the usage of Session Management in Mainframes. In mainframes, unattended interactive
sessions can lead to resource locking and data compromises (or infiltrations). The session timeout features prevents
unauthorized access to such unattended sessions. Coupled with data restoration innovation implemented in mainframes, it
makes the application more user friendly, innovative, secure and saves time for the user. DB2 plays an important role in
managing the sessions in mainframe. This paper also addresses how Session Management will improve the user experience
and prevent unauthorized access to unattended sessions in Mainframes. Session Management is implemented using COBOL,
DB2, CICS in mainframe.
