Trusted Solaris has secure future, Sun says
Sun will continue to offer the Trusted Solaris version of its operating system as a separate product, a company official said Tuesday, trying to clear up any confusion that Sun may have caused in the marketplace.
Sun executives have said several times recently that security features from Trusted Solaris, a hardened version of Sun's operating system used by the military, governments and some enterprises, will be added to its standard Solaris distribution. But the two product lines will continue to exist separately, said Ravi Iyer, Sun's group manager of systems security marketing.
"There's a misperception that these two products have merged. They have not merged, but we took some features from Trusted Solaris and moved them to Solaris," he said.
