The Solaris Operating System (Solaris OS) offers a variety of security services, from single-user login authentication to network protections. In the Solaris 10 release, Sun expands its Solaris OS security offerings to provide containment, encryption, PKCS #11 functionality, Trusted Extensions (labeling), and other advanced security features. Many features are based on open industry standards, such as Kerberos and PKCS #11.
This book is written by the engineers and architects who conceptualized the services, wrote the specifications, and coded the security software. This book is intended for users who are interested in maintaining security on a single system and for users who administer a network of systems.
