Solaris 10 What's New

Separation of Duty Enforcement Through the Solaris Management Console

This feature enforces that two or more people are required to manage users through the Solaris Management Console (SMC). Separation of duty is enforced by rule. The System Administrator role creates users, but cannot assign passwords and rights. The Security Administrator role assigns passwords and rights, but cannot create users.

Separation of Duty is an accreditation requirement for government customers. SMC now supports this feature and makes it easier to achieve security-level certification.
