Solaris 11 Compliance with DISA Security Guidance
Jim Laurent Satisfied with Compliance Effected by Release of Solaris 11
January 16, 2012,
Volume 167, Issue 3

In his post on Solaris 11 compliance with DISA Security guidelines Jim Laurent cautions readers not to construe his comments as a statement of compliance by either Oracle or DISA but rather a casual review of Solaris 11 against current DISA Security Guidelines. Laurent notes with pleasure that an issue raised in his similar review a year ago, has now -- with the release of Solaris 11 -- been fixed. That was the inability to mount /var as a separate file system as the scripts require. The default installation now automatically sets of /var as a separate ZFS data set, Laurent writes.
