Scripting technology demonstrations in (Open)Solaris - V.3

OS 2009.06 - Security Demo screenshoptIt's time to post an update for the scripting tools some of us have been using for automating OpenSolaris technology demonstrations. The latest code drop is here.  The tar files contains everything that was posted previously, including a bug fix and a new crypto framework demo script that shows how to use soft tokens for persistent key storage across reboots. Scott Rotondo also contributed a python script called makedemo that automates the creation of demo scripts from a shell script. For detailed instructions how to use these tools, please refer to my earlier blog entry.

Some of the text below is duplicated from my original blog entry, but I figured it's easier on readers to find all information in a single blog entry rather than having to jump back and forth. For the impatient readers, here's what's new:

  • Ease of portability: demotools are now completely written in Perl - no more C programs that require compilation
  • The demo tools routines are a Perl module now, easily integrated into your program

Scripting technology demonstrations in (Open)Solaris

Several folks have asked me to post the demo scripts and tools I use when presenting (Open)Solaris talks that contain live demonstrations. Initially I hesitated, primarily because these scripts and tools are embarassingly simple. Yet, because I was asked by several of folks, I decided to post them here. If you make improvements to these tools or scripts, please send me the code as I am planning on continuing to use (and document improvements of) this approach until I find something better.[Read More]
