The availability of the Sun Ray Session Server (SRSS) is critical since it manages the sessions associated with the Desktop Units. The Sun Ray software controls user authentication, encryption between Sun Ray servers and Desktop Units, system administration tools, session management, policy enforcement, and device management. If other applications are competing or using hardware resources, the availability of the SRSS may be a risk. Furthermore, application programs such as web servers, databases, or messaging systems may provide an avenue by which a privileged user may unintentionally introduce malicious code.
