A new Solaris security book on the way
By martin on Dec 12, 2008
For the last few months I've been spending my evenings tapping away on the keyboard - but not producing code or managing Solaris servers like I usually do. I've been writing two chapters for an upcoming Solaris security book! It has been fun, but it has also been hard - not hard because I didn't know what to write, but hard to constrain myself from wanting to include too much.
The book is not intended to cover every nitty gritty detail of every security feature in Solaris - that would make it a real brick of a book! So I've had to think hard about what to include, and the level of detail of the included parts.
Parts of the book is already available on Safari Rough Cuts for review before we publish. Please leave comments about on the Safari site so that nothing gets lost.
The chapter about File System Security is mine, and I've also authored the chapter about auditing (not very surprising), though it hasn't been processed for publication yet, but when it is - I'll post a blog entry with a link to it.
