Abstract:

The Clyde DIALBACK Version 1.5 is intended to serve as a user authentication mechanism for use with any VAXVMS systems. Since DIALBACK is a security subsystem rather than a complete system, it was not evaluated against an entire class in the Department of Defense Trusted Computer System Evaluation Criteria, dated December 1985, hereafter referred to as the Criteria. Rather, it was assessed as to how well it performs user authentication and audit of dial-in events. The evaluation team has determined that DIALBACK is a useful, effective authentication mechanism when configured as specified in this report.
