The encryption routines (APIs) allow you to program encryption
operations into applications. OpenVMS Version 8.3 Integrity
servers and Alpha systems support the Advanced Encryption
Standard (AES) algorithm, which allows any OpenVMS user,
system manager, security manager, or programmer to secure their
files, save sets, or application data with AES Encryption. The
former DES algorithm is also supported for complete backward
compatibility. This allows updating archived data encrypted with
DES to the more secure AES encryption algorithm.
