Chairman's Award winner! Yipee!!!

Every year, Scott McNeally and the executive staff give out a handfull of awards for outstanding contributions and innovations.  This year, the Solaris Cryptographic Framework for Solaris 10 was awarded one of the prizes!  This is an amazing recognition for all of our efforts and the great benefits the crypto framework can bring to developers and ISVs!

Our team got to spend the entire morning with the executive staff, in attendance at the virtual leadership conference, and we all got  to shake Scott's hand and get our pictures taken with the award.

Afterwards, the executive staff provided a boxed lunch with an executive at every table.  I was fortunate enough to get to sit with Jonathan Schwartz and Anil Gadre.  Both of these men were very open to listening to feedback from the "normal" employees at the table and actually seemed interested.

Now I'm just waiting for people in the field to really start playing with the Solaris Cryptographic Framework and giving us feedback. C'mon - we're waiting!
Comments:

congrats for the award. The framework is damned cool and I hope ISVĀ“s will build stuff around it. Of course it would help larger acceptance if some visible Solaris utilities could leverage it. To my mind and in priority order: . lofiadm . bart . tar, cpio, ufsdump . crypt . vi (:X)

Hi bbr - Please do NOT use crypt anymore. We only kept shipping it with solaris 10 for backwards compatibility. Use "encrypt" for encrypting files - it gives you access to much better and stronger algorithms. There are also other utilities, digest, mac, and decrypt. I'll take your feedback about the other utils to my team. A lot of libraries in s10 are using uCF, though, like libsasl. thanks for the feedback! valerie

My blog entry Covers the options for encryption commands in Solaris 10 in a fair bit of detail.
