This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Even STRPCCMD is not secure. You can basically invoke very powerful powershell or cmd scripts with such system, privilege escalation etc without any control.
Basically it is assumed that a OS-400 user can invoke commands on the connecting terminal PC.
Let's face it: it is not a good design.
This should be mediated by the 5250 connecting terminal using explicit behaviour and semantics, i.e.:
OPEN THIS LINK / OPEN THIS FILE etc.
but allowing STRPCCMD to launch ANY OS command (cmd.exe , powershell.exe etc.) to the connecting PC? Well.... no.... it is just bad design and a security bomb waiting to happen....
RUNRMTCMD is not a secure solution and will not be implemented. You are encouraged to use STRPCCMD or some other secure solution (eg SSH).
