14 Aug 2010 Securing Solaris 10 Using Industry Guidelines [23397]
Security Blanket incorporates the CIS hardening guidelines for Solaris

The most recently published CIS benchmark for Solaris 10 was released on July 9, 2010. It addresses the recommended security settings in Solaris 10 11/06 through Solaris 10 10/09.
