Solaris can use the tool "Trusted extensions", this is a software which add a security layer on the top of the OS in order to have a security multilevel operating system (Label).

The software allows remote users with the same label, to gain access to the computer without authentication.

An attacker can therefore gain access to global zone (Administrative Zone) without being authentified.
