Introduction to Oracle Solaris Cluster Security

The Oracle Solaris Cluster product is an integrated hardware and software solution that you use to create highly available and scalable services. This guide provides an overview of security in Oracle Solaris Cluster, plus information about secure installations and configuration, security features, and security considerations for developers. Use this book with the entire Oracle Solaris Cluster documentation set to provide a complete view of the Oracle Solaris Cluster software.

Geographic Edition software is a layered extension of the Oracle Solaris Cluster software. The Geographic Edition framework protects applications from unexpected disruptions by using multiple clusters that are geographically separated by long distances. These clusters contain copies of the Geographic Edition infrastructure, which manage replicated data between the clusters.
