Beginning of the End for separate Solaris Data Encryption Kit (SUNWcry)

The removal of the Solaris Data Encryption Kit has been quite a difficult and long process for us, we are taking a different approach for Solaris 10 and for OpenSolaris. Valerie Bubb has info on how it has been done for Solaris 10 and is also currently running codereview for the OpenSolaris variant which is the full fix for this. - Darren
Comments:

I looked at the "info" link above. Great news, being allowed to just include it.

The flip side is that this breaks puTTY, as puTTY wants to use aes256-ctr and SUNWcry does not allow that.

So far, I've not seen a solution for this issue. Do you know if one is in the works?

Thanks,
Ken
