2007-03-28 Security Link Of The Day

As our first Security Link Of The Day we'd really like to mention OpenSolaris and specifically the security communities and projects within it; there are over a score of projects including (but not limited to!) the following categories:

  • Cryptographic Framework (abstract access to accelerated cryptography)
  • IPsec (secure TCP/IP networking)
  • Kerberos (single sign-on solution)
  • SASL (simple authentication security layer, framework for authentication / authorization in internet protocols)
  • SSH (secure shell, encrypted interactive access with tunneling)
  • RBAC (role-based access control, constraining privileged user access)
  • Solaris Auditing (audit trail of user activity)
  • Trusted Extensions (compartmentalisation and labelling of user data and processes)

The best jumping-off points to investigate all the security possibilities are probably the Security Community Wiki and the main OpenSolaris Projects List.

Do take a look. There's a lot of nifty stuff there.
