1.3 Release 5.4.1

This section provides information about what's new in the Sun Ray Software 5.4.1 release.

New Features

The following new feature has been added in this release.

  • Access management for smart card readers

    In previous Sun Ray Software releases, smart card readers attached to Sun Ray Clients were available to all users and there was no way to limit access on a per-user basis. Sun Ray Software now enables you to configure device access policies by using the utdevpolicy command. In this release, you can configure user access to smart card readers based on the zones configured on the Sun Ray server. Specifically, you can configure which smart card readers are accessible in which zones.

    This feature is available only on Sun Ray servers running Oracle Solaris Trusted Extensions and for internal or external smart card readers attached to Sun Ray Clients. See Configuring Access to Smart Card Readers in the Administration Guide for details.

Sun Ray Operating Software 11.1.2

The Sun Ray Operating Software 11.1.2 for Sun Ray Clients was released at the same time as Sun Ray Software 5.4.1 and includes important bug fixes.

To benefit from all the latest Sun Ray Software features and to gain the best user experience, make sure to always install the latest Sun Ray Operating Software on your Sun Ray Clients. Refer to the Sun Ray Operating Software Documentation for details.
