Way back I presented about KSSL in CZOSUG meeting. The presentation seems to be gone from opensolaris.org infrastructure so I have copied the file here.
I have spent some time fixing bugs in KSSL (kernel SSL proxy) implementation in Solaris and got familar with it (and the KSSL development team) so with delight I can co-announce that the KSSL project has been opened on opensolaris.org.
To me, KSSL is one of the unique projects in the (Open)Solaris security land in a sense it is tightly integrated into the system and is a consumer of several major subsystems (networking, crypto framework) which makes it interesting for study and also for extending it in creative ways.
We will start adding more content to the pages, including design documentation and description of KSSL internals. Also, this marks major milestone in a way how KSSL team does its job. From now on all non-confidential discussions, reviews etc. will happen in the open. Feel free to join the project and participate if you're interested ! (become an observer and join the mailing list)
