Solaris Trusted Extensions Transition Guide

Administration Tools in Trusted Extensions

Secure administration requires the use of GUIs that Trusted Extensions provides. Trusted Extensions provides actions in the Trusted_Extensions folder in CDE, a Device Allocation Manager, and the Solaris Management Console. Trusted Extensions adds tools and options to existing tools in the Solaris Management Console GUI. This GUI enables administrators to manage users, networks, zones, and other databases. After launching the Solaris Management Console, the administrator chooses a Trusted Extensions “toolbox”. The toolbox is a collection of programs. The administrator then uses the programs that are permitted to the role.
