Using the Cryptographic Framework (Task Map)

The following task map points to tasks for using the cryptographic framework.

For Instructions
Protect individual files or sets of files
Ensures that file content has not been tampered with. Prevents files from being read by intruders. These procedures can be done by ordinary users.
Administer the framework
Adds, configures, and removes software providers. Disables and enables hardware provider mechanisms. These procedures are administrative procedures.
Sign a provider
Enables a provider to be added to the Oracle Solaris Cryptographic Framework. These procedures are developer procedures.
