Solaris Security Essentials - get it !

As my colleague Valerie has noted in her blog, the Solaris 10 Security Essentials is now officially published.

Though the title says "Solaris 10", most of the material applies to OpenSolaris or Solaris Express Developer/Community Edition as well.    The content was put together by a team of engineers in the Solaris Security group over a period of a year or so.   It really highlights many unique features of Solaris that administrators from "other" system's may not be familiar with.  Topics include using SMF for system protection, Role-Based Access Controls, the Solaris Cryptographic Framework, the Key Management Framework, and Trusted Extensions - just to name a few of the more unique Solaris Security features that are covered.

It's nice to be listed as a "published author".  My family and friends now think I'm the next Stephen King.  I had to explain that this book is neither fictional nor suspenseful.  Perhaps they just think I'm generally a scary guy.  Hmmm...

Anyway, buy the book!  It makes a great stocking stuffer for the security geek in your family!
