Custom OpenVMS Password Policy

PARSEC's OpenVMS Password Policy software.

OpenVMS includes the ability to extend the SET PASSWORD command to enforce a site-specific password policy. PARSEC Group can develop and integrate a policy based on your site requirements. We have developed custom policies for several of our clients to help them comply with both internal and legally mandated security requirements (HIPPA, Sarbanes-Oxley [SOX], SAS 70, etc.).

PARSEC Group has created a standardized password policy which meets the needs of many of our clients. If it does not meet your needs, consider having us develop the software solution to implement your policy.

Password Policy

Some examples of features which have been requested by previous clients include:

  • Minimum number of classes of characters represented
  • Minimum number of characters for each character class
