The Question is:
I have yet to find any documentation for this in terms of how to write a
replacement SYS$ACME_MODULE to authenticate against a different source. DO
you have any references or pointers? Thanks.
The Answer is :
Support for customer-written external authentication (ACME) modules is
expected to be included in a release after OpenVMS V7.3-1. (OpenVMS
V7.3-1 is the first release that contains a documented and supported
sys$acm system service.)
OpenVMS Engineering has presently implemented two ACME modules in support
of DCOM, though specifics of the interface are still somewhat fluid.
Once the interface has fully stabilized and the nuances are understood,
the Wizard would expect it to be made available.
Organizations wishing to create external authentication modules for
OpenVMS prior to the availability of the interface should contact OpenVMS
Engineering directly. (The questioner here is from an organization
already known by OpenVMS Engineering to be interested in this interface.)
