HP OpenVMS Guide to System Security > Part III  Security for the System Administrator

Chapter 7 Managing System Access

  Table of Contents



This chapter explains how you give users access to a system by assigning user accounts and passwords. Descriptions are based on the security needs of a commercial installation with average security needs, where accounts require protection. Descriptions of above-average security needs are also noted. Refer to Chapter 8 “Controlling Access to System Data and Resources” for information on controlling access to system data and resources. See Chapter 6 “Managing the System and Its Data” and Chapter 9 “Security Auditing” for information on auditing user actions.

The Authorize utility (AUTHORIZE) is the primary tool for establishing accounts and passwords. See the HP OpenVMS System Management Utilities Reference Manual: A-L for a description of the utility.
