This appendix describes how to operate an OpenVMS operating system in a C2 environment. C2 is a United States government rating of the security of an operating system; it identifies OpenVMS VAX and OpenVMS Alpha as an operating system that meets the criteria of a Division C, class 2 system, as described in “Definition of the C2 Environment”. Terminology used in this appendix is drawn from the United States government's evaluation criteria.

Those versions of OpenVMS that have been evaluated by the National Computer Security Center (NCSC) are listed in the Evaluated Products List, which is available from the following source:
