Building Secure OpenVMS Applications
Topic Area:
Track: Open VMS
Topic: Languages & Tools
Type:  Breakout Session

Schedule:
11/09/99   10:00 AM     Duration: 90 Min.     Room: 3

Presenter:
Robert Gezelter
Principal, Robert Gezelter  

Abstract:
Today, many applications require a degree of security to ensure that data is entered, modified and viewed by authorized individuals. OpenVMS has extensive facilities for controlling access to and modification of information and restricting access to programs. This session will introduce attendees to the OpenVMS facilities which can be leveraged to provide a consistent, secure computing environment without the need for special user-written security code. Additionally, since these security features are part of the base functionality provided by OpenVMS, they are more creditable when applications environments are audited. These built-in facilities also provide a higher degree of assurance than custom purpose code. The techniques described will be applicable to all applications, whether the language used is DCL, or one of the conventional programming languages used on OpenVMS (e.g. FORTRAN, COBOL, C/C++).

Objectives:
Utilize OpenVMS Facilities to enhance applications security
 
Reduce/eliminate security hazards caused by custom written security procedures
 
Reduce development cost of applications  

Prerequisites for attendees:
A general knowledge of programming on OpenVMS

Required Skill Level:
Introduction
For those entering a profession/changing technology base
