Elements of efficient and secure service provisioning with Solaris
Solaris 10 presents the systems administrator with a wealth of significant advances in network performance, manageability, efficient hardware utilization, and security. This article will describe the various elements of Solaris 10 that will help build a server that will take advantage of all these features.
The idea here is to build a minimized, highly secure, high-performance, and highly efficient operating system profile based on Solaris Containers. Then, using the tools described here, you can build a secure, high-performance application-ready (Web or other) server on top of this profile that leverages Role Based Access Controls (RBAC), ipfilter, and the Solaris Process Rights management feature sets to further secure the Container.
