External and network-wide user authentication with HP OpenVMS Enterprise Directory Version 5.4

HP OpenVMS includes Enterprise Directory as part of the Base Operating Environment (BOE) for v8.4 and newer versions and the Foundation Operating Environment (FOE) for v8.3-1H1 and older versions on HP OpenVMS Integrity servers and AlphaServer system-based operating systems. Enterprise Directory is a fully functioning, X.500 directory. With integrated lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) Version 3 and operation over TCP/IP, it provides the scalability and resilience of X.500 with popular Internet protocols. DECnet Phase V no longer has to be installed for full functionality, making Enterprise Directory ideal as the network-wide repository for OpenVMS user authentication, as well as for other platform users in the enterprise. Please see the following diagram for details:

HP Enterprise Directory v5.4 and HP Administrator for Enterprise Directory Version 2.2 enable users to

  • Keep large amounts of data in a secure directory
  • Spread a large directory over several servers
  • Control access to directory data in a range of ways
  • Gain access from any device that supports LDAP Version 2, v3, or Java

Using the X.500 model, departments and organizations may adopt an incremental, independent approach to establishing a directory service using products from multiple vendors. These separate implementations may be connected together to provide a single, logical directory service that spans the department, organization, region, or the world.

The directory may contain an array of information and may be accessed by both individual users and applications.

This highly-scalable product set supports more than one million queries per hour on a single directory server. Along with the LDAP v3 interface and support for the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI), Enterprise Directory can support many popular user agents and interoperate with contemporary LDAP v3 directory servers. It is certified with Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) authorities Baltimore and Entrust, offering customers increased content security.
