Kerberos for HP OpenVMS

» Download Kerberos V3.2 for OpenVMS Alpha and OpenVMS Integrity servers (Includes production version of Kerberos ACME agent) (April 2011)

HP is pleased to announce a new customer release version of Kerberos for OpenVMS which includes production version of the Kerberos ACME agent, based on the MIT Kerberos V5 Release 1.4.1 including security patches

Kerberos V3.2 includes production images for the Kerberos ACME agent. The Kerberos ACME agent is an addition to the existing Kerberos authentication provided by the Kerberos utilities. The Kerberos ACME provides functionality similar to the pam_krb5 utility on UNIX systems using Kerberos.

Kerberos V3.2 for OpenVMS (included in OpenVMS V8.3-1H1) contains support for IPv6 at the same level as the MIT's Kerberos V5 1.4.1 sources. The IPv6 functionality enables Kerberos authentication over IPv6, however, administrator functions still must operate over IPv4 for this release. For more information, see the Kerberos for OpenVMS Release Notes.

Kerberos V3.2 runs on OpenVMS Alpha and Integrity servers V8.3 and later. Kerberos V3.1, V3.0, and V2.0 are also available for download. Version 3.1 runs on OpenVMS Alpha and Integrity servers V8.3 and later. Version 3.0 runs on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-2 and later, and OpenVMS Integrity servers V8.2 and later. Version 2.0 runs on OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-2, 7.3-1, and 7.3-2, and OpenVMS VAX V7.3.

Using Kerberos with TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS, you can secure your Telnet connections between the OpenVMS systems. For detailed instructions, see the Kerberos for OpenVMS Installation and Configuration Guide.

Kerberos is a network authentication protocol designed to provide strong authentication for client/server applications by using secret-key cryptography.

Kerberos was created by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) as a solution for network security. The Kerberos protocol uses strong cryptography so that a client can prove its identity to a server (and vice versa) across an insecure network connection. After a client and server have used Kerberos to prove their identity, they can also encrypt all of their communications to assure privacy and data integrity.
