Perhaps if you explain what you mean by "base product of z/OS or add-on product"?

Hello,

Every z/OS system (at lease every one i've ever seen) runs security software - racf, acf2, or TopSecret.

As Robert mentioned, if you explain what you are looking for, someone may have a more useful reply.

RACF doesen't come along with z/OS. It's an IBM priced product!!
You can use any other product like ACF2 , TOPSECRET.... as an alternative to RACF.

To my knowledge, the one which comes along with the z/OS when purchased is a base product.(TCPIP, SAF.....)
help me if I am WRONG!!

Racf is automatically delivered with base z/OS . If you want to use it you must activate it (IFAPRDxx) and pay

I would have to say you're wrong here. RACF is shipped as part of the operating system. However, it cannot be used unless you pay extra for it. Your purchase of z/OS does not include RACF. Base product? Add-on product? That depends upon how you call it -- base if you think what is shipped with the operating system is base, add-on if you think extra charges mean add-ons. That's why I asked for the clarification -- it's not a simple YES/NO type answer.
