|Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration Oracle Solaris 11 Express 11/10|
The Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration guide provides procedures for enabling and initially configuring the Trusted Extensions feature on the Oracle Solaris operating system (Oracle Solaris OS). This guide also provides procedures for managing users, zones, devices, and hosts on a Trusted Extensions system.
Note - This Oracle Solaris release supports systems that use the SPARC and x86 families of processor architectures. The supported systems appear in the Oracle Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists. This document cites any implementation differences between the platform types.
In this document these x86 related terms mean the following:
“x86” refers to the larger family of 64-bit and 32-bit x86 compatible products.
“x64” relates specifically to 64-bit x86 compatible CPUs.
“32-bit x86” points out specific 32-bit information about x86 based systems.
For supported systems, see the Oracle Solaris OS: Hardware Compatibility Lists.
This guide is for knowledgeable system administrators and security administrators who are configuring and administering Trusted Extensions software. The level of trust that is required by your site security policy, and your level of expertise, determine who can perform the configuration tasks.
Administrators should be familiar with Oracle Solaris administration. In addition, administrators should understand the following:
The security features of Trusted Extensions and your site security policy
Basic concepts and procedures for using a host that is configured with Trusted Extensions, as described in the Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions User Guide
How administrative tasks are divided among roles at your site
Trusted Extensions runs on top of the Oracle Solaris OS. Because Trusted Extensions software can modify the Oracle Solaris OS, Trusted Extensions can require specific settings for Oracle Solaris installation options. Part I of this guide describes how to prepare the Oracle Solaris OS for Trusted Extensions, how to enable Trusted Extensions, and how to initially configure the software. Part II of this guide describes how to administer the uniquely Trusted Extensions features of the system.
The following table lists the topics that are covered in the Trusted Extensions guides and the audience for each guide.
The following guides contain information that is useful when you prepare for and run Trusted Extensions software.
