Check Text ( C-56338r822533_chk )
Refer to the CSFPRMxx member in the logical PARMLIB concatenation.

If the configuration parameters are specified as follows, this is not a finding.

REASONCODES(ICSF)
COMPAT(NO)
SSM(NO)
SSM can be dynamically set by defining the CSF.SSM.ENABLE SAF profile within the XFACILIT resource
Class. If this profile is not limited to authorized personnel this is a finding.
CHECKAUTH(YES)
FIPSMODE(YES,FAIL(YES))
AUDITKEYLIFECKDS (TOKEN(YES),LABEL(YES)).
AUDITKEYLIFEPKDS (TOKEN(YES),LABEL(YES)).
AUDITKEYLIFETKDS (TOKENOBJ(YES),SESSIONOBJ(YES)).
AUDITKEYUSGCKDS (TOKEN(YES),LABEL(YES),INTERVAL(n)).
AUDITKEYUSGPKDS (TOKEN(YES),LABEL(YES),INTERVAL(n)).
AUDITPKCS11USG (TOKENOBJ(YES),SESSIONOBJ(YES),NOKEY(YES),INTERVAL(n)).

DEFAULTWRAP - This parameter can be determined by the site. ENHANCED wrapping specifies the new X9.24 compliant CBC wrapping is used.
If DEFAULTWRAP is not specified, the default wrapping method will be ORIGINAL for both internal and external tokens. Starting with ICSF FMID HCR77C0, the value for this option can be updated without restarting ICSF by using either the SETICSF command or the ICSF Multi-Purpose service. If this access is not restricted to appropriate personnel, this is a finding.

Note: Other options may be site-defined.
