Solaris Trusted Extensions Transition Guide

Labels in Trusted Extensions

As in the Trusted Solaris releases, Trusted Extensions provides a label_encodings file. Labels, label ranges, clearances, and defaults are defined in the label_encodings file.

In Trusted Extensions, the label_encodings file that is installed by default defines commercial labels, such as RESTRICTED and PUBLIC. In Trusted Solaris releases, the default label encodings file, label_encodings.multi, was a version of a U.S. Government encodings file.

In the Label Builder, labels are shown in long form instead of in short form. When choosing a session clearance or workspace label, Trusted Path is used instead of Admin Low or Admin High.
