Developer's Guide to Oracle Solaris Security

Privilege Categories

Privileges are logically grouped on the basis of the scope of the privilege, as follows:

See the privileges(5) man page for a complete list of the Oracle Solaris privileges with descriptions.

Note –

Oracle Solaris provides the zones facility, which lets an administrator set up isolated environments for running applications. See zones(5). Since a process in a zone is prevented from monitoring or interfering with other activity in the system outside of that zone, any privileges on that process are limited to the zone as well. However, if needed, the PRIV_PROC_ZONE privilege can be applied to processes in the global zone that need privileges to operate in non–global zones.
