Solaris Security Essentials - get it !

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!
