From Sun Ray User Group Wiki
Kiosk Mode is a locked down application environment. Generic UNIX user accounts are used to bypass the normal authentication steps to get to an X11 environment.
Originally called Controlled Access Mode, CAM was introduced as a feature starting with Sun Ray Server 1.3.
The first implementation of CAM had the option of letting users Run in a CDE-like environment.
CAM was re-built from the ground up in SRSS 4.0 as was officially named Kiosk Mode. This rewrite brought with it many additions, including Linux support, Locked down JDS option, and selective token override.
An updated presentation covering Kiosk Mode in SRS 4.0 is located in this post. DV Days
