Let G be a group. The groups G ′ for which G is an automorphism group have not been fully characterized. Suppose R is a Completely Primary finite Ring with Jacobson Radical J such that J 2 = (0). In this case, the characteristic of R is p or p 2 and the group of units R * = Zpr−1 × (I + J) . The structure of R * is well known, but its automorphism group is not well documented. Given the group R * , let Aut(R * ) denote the group of isomorphisms φ : R * → R * with multiplication given by the

In this note, we determine the structure of Aut(R * ) using well known procedures and to this end, extend the results previously obtained in this area of research.
