Some S10 features


Wow, three comments without actually writing something interesting!

I'm actually off for a two week vacation starting tomorrow, but perhaps I should start with a list of things that I have done for Solaris 10.

By far the biggest thing I've done are Solaris privileges; it leans somewhat on Trusted Solaris but it has some fairly unique features.

But we've also been playing "catch-up", i.e., including features missing from Solaris but commonly found elsewhere.

The list looks somewhat like this.

Solaris Privileges.
TCP wrapped rpcbind.
noexec mount option (solaris 10 also separates nosuid in nosetuid and nodevices).
getpeerucred(2) and ucred_get(3C).
mktemp(1)
pcred(1) updates (set credentials of running process)

Comments:

Very interesting blog. I rally think these Sun blogs aren't talks in "thin air". It's like reading a good quality magazine article. Only these are written by the same guys designing the kernel. You can't have more insight than that. Plus you can give feedback and ask questions very directly. Keep blogging.
