Description
Bottom rule

IBM Sametime Complete V9.0.1 is a robust communications offering designed to accelerate your social business by driving faster decisions, with more complete information powered by the people who know in your organization. Unlock the value in your under-utilized communications systems by integrating them into a more intuitive system. Access all of these services from within the applications and business processes that you use every day.

Additionally, this release provides enhanced security for HTML. The meeting server protects users by scanning user input to detect and reject malicious HTML/ JavaScript™ and Cross Site Scripting (XSS). For example, this is done on the meeting server when users enter text into chat, polling responses, and so on. In addition to normal users, consideration is given to malicious users with tools that can bypass the user interface, and inject XSS directly into the protocol. In former versions of the meeting server, HTML was permitted if it did not include malicious patterns maintained in an untrusted HTML list. In the newer version of the meeting server, no HTML is allowed, unless it meets criteria set by a restrictive, preselected set of safe HTML tags, attributes, and values. This new security standard eliminates regular maintenance upkeep of the HTML malicious patterns list. The security improvement now allows for new XSS patterns, continual changes in HTML5, and browser quirks to be kept current, minimizing the risk potential over time. This enhanced security strategy preselects a simple set of HTML, thus eliminating the need for continual maintenance, and mitigating any increasing risk potential over time, as seen with the former approach.

Authorized User

Authorized User is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. An Authorized User is a unique person who is given access to the program. The program may be installed on any number of computers or servers and each Authorized User may have simultaneous access to any number of instances of the program at one time. Licensee must obtain separate, dedicated entitlements for each Authorized User given access to the program in any manner directly or indirectly (for example, through a multiplexing program, device, or application server) through any means. An entitlement for an Authorized User is unique to that Authorized User and may not be shared, nor may it be reassigned other than for the permanent transfer of the Authorized User entitlement to another person.

Note: Some programs may be licensed where devices are considered users. In that case, the following applies. Any computing device that requests the execution of or receives for execution a set of commands, procedures, or applications from the program or that is otherwise managed by the program is considered a separate user of the program and requires an entitlement as if that device were a person.

The terms and conditions that govern any transaction with IBM are contained in the applicable contract documents such as the IBM International Program License Agreement, IBM International Passport Advantage Agreement, and the IBM Agreement for Acquisition of Software Maintenance.

IBM includes one year of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Subscription and Support (also referred to as Software Maintenance) can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option, if available. These programs have a one-time license charge for use of the program and an annual renewable charge for the enhanced support that includes telephone assistance (voice support for defects during normal business hours), as well as access to updates, releases, and versions of the program as long as support is in effect.

If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or IBM Business Partner.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a lawful, comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective.

Important: IBM does not warrant that any systems, products, or services are immune from, or will make your enterprise immune from, the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
