CSP’s BITUG 2022 Recap



CSP logo

BIG SIG, hosted by the British Isles Tandem User Group, returned for its first in-person event in two years. The conference was held at London’s Trinity House, located in the famous Tower Hill neighborhood.


It was great to see everyone in London, and we appreciate all the hard work the organizers put in to ensure a successful return.

Plans are also underway to hold the Canadian Tandem User Group and Atlanta Tandem User Group conferences in the fall. These are two stellar events that are always highlights of the season. I am sure that the NonStop community is excited and grateful to return to these events after a two-year hiatus. Of course, the return of Technical Boot Camp in November is sure to close out the year in a stellar fashion.

CSP was proud to be a sponsor of the 2022 BIG SIG hosted by BITUG.  CSP Head of Sales, Peter Mehta, presented the new enhancements to CSP Authenticator+®, our multi-factor authentication solution built for universal Application and System (TACL and OSS) access.

CSP Authenticator+ allows security administrators to easily implement one or several authentication methods, including token-based systems such as RSA or similar providers.

We also took the opportunity to announce our brand-new vulnerability scanning & reporting solution for HPE NonStop systems, CSP Vulnerability Scanner™.

Introducing CSP Vulnerability Scanner™


This tool is a vulnerability scanning & reporting solution for HPE NonStop systems that analyzes risks & identifies vulnerabilities by checking the NonStop system configuration, access permissions, and security settings. It generates insightful reports for users and recommends changes to improve the security posture.

To effectively audit the security of the systems, the CSP Vulnerability Scanner gathers a vast amount of information from different sources, including Safeguard, Guardian, and other subsystems. It automates this task by providing reports and analysis from a single source for both technical and non-technical users. The CSP Vulnerability Scanner also includes access to CSP-Wiki®, where users can get more details on the settings, security, and compliance implications.

Installation and Use

The installation process is quick, and the solution is easy to use. There are two ways to select the desired scans & generate reports:

  1. VSREPORT Macro- This TACL macro guides the users to build a report
  2. TACL command line – For users that are very familiar with command syntax

The users will be able to select from a list of available reports and, based on the selection, may be prompted for some additional information.


Key Features:

  1. Scans NonStop systems to identify vulnerabilities
  2. Provides recommendations to improve security
  3. Very easy to install and use
  4. Quickly perform scans and generate insightful reports
  5. Easily select from list of available reports
  6. Export reports with Spoolview
