Solaris Security Toolkit

To facilitate the deployment of OpenSSH, the SolarisTM Security Toolkit software includes a finish script, Finish/install-openssh.fin, to automate the installation of the OBSDssh package. The finish script needs to be edited to include the version of OpenSSH, the package location, and the package name. The script will not install OpenSSH onto a Solaris 9 OE system because the Solaris Secure Shell software is provided. The script must be altered to force the installation onto a Solaris OE 9 system. For more information on editing the installation script, refer to Securing Systems with the Solaris Security Toolkit by Alex Noordergraaf and Glenn Brunette (Sun Microsystems Press, 2003).


For minimized installations of the Solaris OS, the SUNWcsl package is required for OpenSSH. The SUNWzlib package is also required if the dynamic Zlib library is used to build OpenSSH.
