Re: Pointer to a process's credential structure?

It's probably a good idea to enable the hardware password feature on
our Solaris consoles anyway (or is it?), but if there's a program
bundled with Solaris that will spit out that address, there's an added
reason for doing so.  :-)

You can do the same thing on almost any system with a kernel debugger
and a "console".  On a RS/6000, put the keyswitch in "service" position
and press CTRL-\ on the async console.  If you get a debugger prompt,
whammo, you're in.

The moral of the story is PROTECT YOUR HARDWARE, DAMNIT.
