Sun Achieves Gold Standard Security Certification for Solaris 10 5/08

Sun is proud to announce that the Solaris 10 5/08 release has passed through the Common Criteria process. The independently-tested Common Criteria process is recognized world-wide by governments and security-conscious customers as the Gold standard and green light for production deployments. The testing for Solaris 10 included both SPARC and x86 architectures in a mix of environments, with full naming services, GUI management and virtualized guests.

Specifically, Solaris 5/08 has undergone the Assurance Continuity process for Controlled Access Protection Profile and Role Based Access Control Protection Profile at Evaluation Assurance Level 4+. Sun is also committed to certifying Solaris 10 5/08 against the Labeled Security Protection Profile in the near future.

2007 Xorg Developer's Conference in Menlo Park, CA, February 7-9, 2007

I wanted to alert folks about the upcoming 2007 X.org Developer's Conference being hosted by Sun at 120 Independence Drive in Menlo Park, CA, February 7-9.

We are expecting 30+ developers of this open source cooperative project to attend the 3 day meeting. They will discuss and advance the current work taking place in the areas of security, display auto-configuration and reconfiguration, and new windowing paradigms, including Project Looking Glass, Beryl and Compiz.

As a major sponsor of the Xorg Foundation, Sun has contributed code, money, equipment, and time in all aspects of running the organization, its internet infrastructure, and events. Sun is committed to the success of the Xorg Foundation as the vehicle which guarantees ubiquitous, high-functioning window system service across all Unix operating system flavors and hardware platforms.
