Using the PAM interface in the Solaris OE offers administrators greater flexibility in deploying authentication mechanisms. Administrators can choose a default authentication method, and require more secure mechanisms as needed.
It is the combination of flexibility and ease-of-use that makes the PAM interface in the Solaris 9 OE an effective way to raise the overall security of the Solaris OE. PAM is part of an overall security solution from Sun Microsystems, Inc. Increasing overall security can help your enterprise protect IT assets and improve overall availability.
