Overview – The Developer's Guide to Oracle Solaris 11 Security describes the public application programming interfaces (API) and service provider interfaces (SPI) for the security features in the Oracle Solaris® operating environment. The term service provider refers to components that are plugged into a framework to provide security services, such as cryptographic algorithms and security protocols.
The Developer's Guide to Oracle Solaris 11 Security is intended for C-language developers who want to write the following types of programs:
Privileged applications that can override system controls
Applications that use authentication and related security services
Applications that need to secure network communications
Applications that use cryptographic services
Libraries, shared objects, and plug-ins that provide or consume security services
Required knowledge – Readers of this guide should be familiar with C programming. A basic knowledge of security mechanisms is helpful but not required. You do not need to have specialized knowledge about network programming to use this book.
