Password Verification

Last update February 6, 2019

CA TPX™ Session Management allows users to sign on with a traditional password through the TEN0003 panel, or with a passcode through the TEN1003 panel.

TEN0003 - User Signon Panel for Traditional Password Verification

The TEN0003 panel allows users to sign on to CA TPX with a combination of a valid user ID and traditional password. TEN0003 also allows users to change their password. 

CA TPX also supplies the panel TEN1003 that allows users to sign on with a passcode.

Configure TEN0003

You can configure the signon panel by updating the Default LOGO: field on the User Signon panel on the CA TPX System Options Table Detail Panel (Panel TEN0108):

Variables on the TEN0003 panel effect how the panel functions and what is displayed. For example, you can display your company name on the TEN0003 panel. The TEN0003 signon panel allows for these signon related variables:

  • SNUSERV
    Specifies the user ID.
    Limits: 1-8 characters
  • SNPSWDV
    Specifies the password or the first half of a password phrase.
    Limits: 
    • 1-8 characters for a password
    • 9-50 characters for the first half of a password phrase
  • SNPSWDV2
    (Optional) Specifies the second half of a password phrase.
    Limits: 0-50 characters
  • SNNPSWDV
    Specifies the new password or the first half of a new password phrase.
    Limits:
    • 1-8 characters for a new password
    • 9-50 characters for the first half of a new password phrase
  • SNNPSWD2
    (Optional) Specifies the second half of a new password phrase or pass code.
    Limits: 0-50 characters
  • SNVPSWDV
    Specifies the new verified password or the first half of a new verified password phrase.
    Limits: 
    • 1-8 characters for a new verified password
    • 9-50 characters for the first half of a new verified password phrase
  • SNVPSWD2
    (Optional) Specifies the second half of a new verified password phrase.
    Limits: 0-50 characters

Notes:

  • CA TPX does not ship TEN0003 with the SNVPSWDV field on the panel. CA TPX will process SNVPSWDV if you manually configure TEN003 to place it on the panel.
  • Password phrase is synonymous with pass code.

Use caution when modifying fields on the TEN0003 panel. CA recommends that you only place password fields of up to 8 characters on the TEN0003 panel. Use the TEN1003 panel to allow signon with a password phrase or MFA/AAM code. 

You can find the source for the TEN0003 signon panel in the ISPPENU panel library.

TEN1003 - User Signon Panel for Passcode Verification

The TEN1003 panel allows users to sign on to CA TPX with a passcode. Passcodes can include a password, password phrase, or Multi-Factor Authentication and Advanced Authentication Mainframe (MFA/AAM) code.

The TEN1003 panel requires sites to use CA ACF2, CA Top Secret or IBM RACF security systems. CA ACF2 R15 (Z/OS) and CA ACF2 R14 (Z/OS) sites must apply ACF2 APAR RO38461 before using  password phrase or MFA/AAM with CA TPX.

Important! Sites using IBM RACF must configure CA TPX to use SAF security (SMRT Security System=SAF and SAMT=SAF).

The TEN1003 panel allows users to verify if the following authentication factors have been entered:

  • A valid user ID and MFA/AAM code (RSA token and PIN combination)
  • A valid user ID and password phrase combination.
  • A valid user ID and password combination
  • A valid password phrase and new password phrase.
  • A valid password and new password.

CA TPX also supplies the TEN0003 panel that allows users to sign on with a traditional 1 through 8 character password.

Configure TEN1003

A CA TPX site administrator configures the sign-on panel by updating the Default LOGO: field on the User Signon panel on the CA TPX System Options Table Detail Panel (Panel TEN0108):

Variables on the TEN1003 panel affect how the panel functions and what is displayed. For example, you can display your company name on the CA TPX TEN1003 panel. The TEN1003 sign-on panel allows for these signon related variables:

  • SNUSERV
    Specifies the user ID.
    Limits: 1-8 characters
  • SNPSWDV
    Specifies the password or the first half of a password phrase.
    Limits:
    • 1-8 characters for a password
    • 9-50 characters for the first half of a password phrase
  • SNPSWDV2
    (Optional) Specifies the second half of a password phrase.
    Limits: 0-50 characters
  • SNNPSWDV
    Specifies the new password or the first half of a new password phrase.
    Limits:
    • 1-8 characters for a new password
    • 9-50 characters for the first half of a new password phrase
  • SNNPSWD2
    (Optional) Specifies the second half of a new password phrase.
    Limits: 0-50 characters
  • SNVPSWDV
    Specifies the new verified password or the first half of a new verified password phrase.
    Limits:
    • 1-8 characters for a new verified password
    • 9-50 characters for the first half of a new verified password phrase
  • SNVPSWD2
    (Optional) Specifies the second half of a new verified password phrase.
    Limits: 0-50 characters

Notes:

  • CA TPX does not ship TEN0003 with the SNVPSWDV or SNVPSWD2 fields on the panel. CA TPX will process SNVPSWDV and SNVPSWD2 if you manually configure TEN003 to place them on the panel.
  • Password phrase is synonymous with pass code.

Use caution when modifying fields on the TEN1003 panel. Variables related to password phrase fields can contain up to 50 characters. If you enter less than nine characters in a password related field you must use a traditional password sign on attempt. All major external security systems do not allow users to change a password to a password phrase during signon.
