Sun distinguished engineer Glenn Brunette recently blogged about the top five security capabilities in the Solaris 10 OS: auditing, privileges, role-based access control, zones, and network security by default. Truly impressive! No wonder the big following that OpenSolaris has been attracting (over 80,000 people registered as of November 2007), as discussed in a Q&A with community manager Jim Grisanzio.Solaris 10 OS won an InfoWorld 2008 Technology of the Year Award—for good reason.
