Labels and Clearances

This chapter describes the Trusted Extensions APIs for performing basic label operations such as initializing labels, and comparing labels and clearances. This chapter also describes the APIs for accessing the label of a process.

For examples of how the Trusted Extensions APIs are used in the Oracle Solaris OS, see the Oracle Solaris source code. Go to the OpenSolaris web site and click Source Browser in the left navigation bar. Use the Source Browser to search through the Oracle Solaris source code.

This chapter covers the following topics:

Chapter 3, Label Code Examples provides code examples for the programming interfaces that are described in this chapter.
