Solaris Setting and Security

In Solaris,
1. What is the location of the default password file and shadow password file?
2. How to know whether Solaris has enabled the ScreenSaver lock with the password protection enabled? and the timeout period? And the configuration files location?
3. How to get all the audit log configuration files and the permission of each?
4. How to know whether failed login are logged? And where is the log file?
5. How to know whether system logging daemon is enabled?

Hope if anyone can help! Thank you very much!

Are you familiar with Linux or other Unix environments?
Which Solaris version are you dealing with?
Configuration files usually are in /etc
Screen saver settings are part of a graphical environment and are likely in /etc/X11.

I'd suggest that you look through the system.

/sbin/ifconfig -a (network interface information)
netstat -rn  (routing table)

syslog is often the handler for the notifications and its configuration is /etc/syslog.conf there you can see the files and which applications log to them.
/etc/ssh/sshd_config deals with ssh server settings.
