Way back in February, I made a posting about Sun Systemic Security. Since it has been a while since that
posting, and since I had developed some fresh material for our Customer Engineering Conference, I wanted to do a follow up so that I could share this new material with you.
I have posted two new presentations on the topic of Sun Systemic Security. The first is a general overview that is intended for use in executive settings or to provide a very high level introduction to the material. The second presentation is a deeper dive into architectural security patterns. This second talk was the basis for my presentation at CEC and provides a more in-depth treatment of various security patterns and how they can be instantiated with Sun products and solutions.
What I like about the second presentation is that it demonstrates, in I believe a very compelling way, the security value proposition for Sun by
illustrating how Sun can help support customer security and assurance goals at every level of the stack and how
using a pattern-based approach, a reinforcing architecture can be constructed (or an existing one adapted) to better
embody a variety of security principles such as self-preservation, compartmentalization, least privilege, defense in
depth and others.
The Sun Systemic Security program is always growing and evolving and so we are always looking for feedback from our customers and partners. Be sure to let us know what you think!
