Solaris Core Technologies - Networking

My team is working on a number of cool networking technologies like IP Filter, IPv6 and DHCP. We are just finishing work on IPv6 support for IP Filter and we are now starting out with a new project called Whitney that will define packet filtering hooks in Solaris for both IP Filter as well as 3rd party fire wall and intrusion detection software. Whitney provide a number of advantages like: - Enabling IP Filter between zones - Minimize the performance hit of packet filtering - Provide cleaner interface for packet filtering Another very ambitious project is looking at creating a read-only root file system. This would allow Solaris to make inroads into the appliance market. It also offers a number of security advantages. We are currently trying to scope the project. Stay tuned for updates. Markus
