This document, Security Configuration Benchmark for Solaris 10 11/06 through 10/09, was specifically designed to address the recommended security settings included in Solaris 10 11/06 (Update 3) through Solaris 10 10/09 (Update 8) running on x86 or SPARC platforms. The Solaris 10 operating system (Solaris 10 OS) was originally released in March 2005 and has since undergone several updates. While many of the controls discussed in this document were available in earlier versions of the Solaris OS, some of the functionality discussed may not be present in those older versions. This guide was tested against Solaris 10 10/09 as installed using the SUNWCXall "Entire Distribution Plus OEM" software installation cluster.
