The Solaris Trusted Extensions Transition Guide describes the differences between the Solaris Trusted Extensions release and the following releases:
The Trusted Solaris 8 releases
The Solaris 10 Operating System release
The differences include labels, a modified desktop, a modified windowing system, and modified administration tools.
The most recent changes to the software are described in Differences Between Trusted Solaris 8 Software and Solaris Trusted Extensions.
Note - This Solaris release supports systems that use the SPARC and x86 families of processor architectures: UltraSPARC, SPARC64, AMD64, Pentium, and Xeon EM64T. The supported systems appear in the Solaris 10 Hardware Compatibility List at http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl. 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” points out specific 64-bit information about AMD64 or EM64T systems.
“32-bit x86” points out specific 32-bit information about x86 based systems.
For supported systems, see the Solaris 10 Hardware Compatibility List.
All users should find the book useful. The Solaris Trusted Extensions Transition Guide is designed for users who are familiar with Trusted Solaris releases and with the Solaris OS. This book enables these users to more easily use systems that are configured with Solaris Trusted Extensions.
If you have used the Trusted Solaris 7 release, but you have not used the Trusted Solaris 8 releases, read the Trusted Solaris 8 HW 7/03 Transition Guide. The guide is available on the Sun documentation site.
