Are there any good documentation, HOWTOs or books (preferably free and online) describing the permission-mechanism for Solaris/OpenIndiana? How auths, profiles, roles, projects, groups and users relate to each other... how to use the mechanism optimally... and what exactly the various named auths, profiles and roles actually are allowed to do, and what users should be assigned them and why?

Joerg Moellenkamp's blog always has some nice insights. He wrote a little PDF booklet --"Less Known Solaris Features," which presents a narrative/examples on how to combine these features for use with least privilege and access control. Its all in the chapter on security.
