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. See the“Controlling Access to System Data and Resources” for information
on controlling access to system data and resources. See “Managing the System and its Data” and “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.
