Chapter 10. Securing Network Services

IN THIS FINAL CHAPTER OF THE BOOK, you will see some of the risks of providing and using various network services and how to secure the most popular network services running on Solaris 8. Although it is both impossible and unnecessary to cover all network applications available on Solaris, we will look at the security of the most widely used and important services, such as e-mail (sendmail) and the World Wide Web (Apache).
