Hello and welcome to my first attempt at a blog. Before I begin, I would just like to tell you a little about who I am and what I do. As you can tell from the title, my name is Glenn Brunette. I have a Master's in Computer Science from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia, PA, and I have been working in and around computer and information security for well over a decade.
I am a Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems, Inc. working in the Client Services (formerly Professional Services) division. I have been with Sun for nearly five years and am currently working in the United State's Chief Technologist's Office as the Chief Security Architect for the region.
In this role, my work falls into three different areas: (1) working with teams in my region to ensure that security is built into our solutions and that our teams have a baseline level of security knowledge and training; (2) working with teams across Sun on all kinds of matters related to the security of our products, services, training and certification programs; and (3) working with customers either in a mentoring or consulting capacity. As a general rule, my goal is to help make it easier for Sun and our customers to build and maintain secure computing environments.
In addition to my "day job", I also work on a number of side projects. For example, I am the co-founder and lead developer of the Solaris Security Toolkit (also known as "JASS"). You will probably see me posting about it from time to time. In addition, I am also an active member of the Center for Internet Security's Unix Benchmark Team as well as the National Cybersecurity Partnership's Technical Standards and Common Criteria Task Force.
