9780137012336: Solaris 10 Security Essentials (Solaris System Administration)

Solaris10 Security Essentials describes the various security technologies contained in the Solaris operating system. The book describes how to make installations secure and how to configure the OS to the particular needs of your environment, whether your systems are on the edge of the Internet or running a data center. The authors present the material in a straightforward way that makes a seemingly arcane subject accessible to system administrators at all levels.

 

The strengths of the Solaris operating system’s security model are its scalability and its adaptability. It can protect a single user with login authentication or multiple users with Internet and intranet configurations requiring user-rights management, authentication, encryption, IP security, key management, and more. This book is written for users who need to secure their laptops, network administrators who must secure an entire company, and everyone in between.

 

The book’s topics include

  • Zones virtualization security
  • System hardening
  • Trusted Extensions (Multi-layered Security)
  • Privileges and role-based access control (RBAC)
  • Cryptographic services and key management
  • Auditing
  • Network security
  • Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM)

Solaris10 Security Essentials is the first in a new series on Solaris system administration. It is a superb guide to deploying and managing secure computer environments.
