It is a framework consisting of two elements: a technical document that explains the theory, and a software program that implements it. CCruncher evaluates the portfolio credit risk by sampling the portfolio loss distribution and computing the Expected Loss (EL), Value at Risk (VaR), and Expected Shortfall (ES) statistics.

MQ Message Encryption (MQME) is a solution that provides encryption for WebSphere MQ message data while it resides in a queue and in the MQ logs. It uses AES and offers the ability to control who accesses protected queues. This control is obtained through the use of UserID grouping, and group files are similar to the Unix /etc/group file. It also has the ability to generate and validate messages using a SHA-2 digital signature.
Release Notes: Support for local OS group querying was added. UserIDs, UseGroups, Groups, GroupFile, UseApplications, and Applications keywords were removed, and new keywords were added: UserIDsForGet, UseGroupsForGet, GroupsForGet, UseGroupFileForGet, GroupFileForGet, UseApplicationsForGet, ApplicationsForGet, UserIDsForPut, UseGroupsForPut, GroupsForPut, UseGroupFileForPut, GroupFileForPut, UseApplicationsForPut, and ApplicationsForPut.
MQ Authenticate User Security Exit (MQAUSX) is a solution that allows a company to fully authenticate a user who is accessing a WebSphere MQ resource. It verifies the user's user ID and password (and possibly domain name) against the server's native OS system (or domain controller) or a remote LDAP server. The security exit will operate with WebSphere MQ v6.0, v7.0, v7.1, or v7.5 in Windows, iSeries (OS/400), Unix, and Linux environments. It works with Server Connection, Client Connection, Sender, Receiver, Server, Requestor, Cluster-Sender, and Cluster-Receiver channels of WebSphere MQ queue manager. The MQ Authenticate User Security Exit solution is comprised of 2 components: client-side security exit and server-side security exit.
Release Notes: MQAUSX server-side security now defaults to AES 256-bit encryption for user credentials. Support for authentication against Quest Authentication Services (QAS) aka Vintela Authentication Services on Unix/Linux was added. Support for authentication against Centrify’s DirectControl (CDC) on Unix/Linux was added. A UseLDAPGroupSearchBindDN keyword was added. A new UseLDAPAuthCompare keyword causes LDAP bind to be used for authentication rather than LDAP compare.

The security exit will operate with WebSphere MQ v6.0, v7.0, v7.1, or v7.5 in Windows, IBM i (OS/400), Unix, and Linux environments. It works with Server Connection, Receiver, Requestor, and Cluster-Receiver channels of WebSphere MQ queue manager. The MQ Standard Security Exit solution is comprised of a server-side security exit.
Release Notes: This release added UseAllowHostname, AllowHostname, UseRejectHostname, RejectHostname, UseAllowHostByName, AllowHostByName, UseRejectHostByName, and RejectHostByName keywords for controlling access based on host names. A SystemLogMessage keyword controls which types of messages (‘accepted’ and/or ‘rejected’) are written to the system log, UseGroups, Groups, UseGroupFile, and GroupFile keywords were added.
MQ Channel Encryption (MQCE) is a solution that provides AES encryption for message data flowing between WebSphere MQ (WMQ) resources. It operates with Sender, Receiver, Server, Requestor, Cluster-Sender, Cluster-Receiver, Server Connection, and Client Connection channels of the WMQ queue managers. It is a simple drop-in solution and can be configured as a queue manager channel message exit or as a channel sender/receive exit pair.
Release Notes: This release was tested with WMQ 7.5. The MQCE header was altered due to incorrect exit data length received from MQ - PMR 58128. The accepted IniFile parameter length was increased from 1024 to 2048 characters. A new 64-bit native DLL (64\mqce.dll) was provided along with 32- and 64-bit .NET DLLs. A MQCE Programming Guide manual was provided. A bug in the in-memory INI parser was fixed.
