Administrative Interfaces in Trusted Extensions

Trusted Extensions provides interfaces for its software. The following interfaces are available only when Trusted Extensions software is running:

txzonemgr script

Provides a menu-based wizard for creating, installing, initializing, and booting labeled zones. The title of the menu is Labeled Zone Manager. This script also provides menu items for networking options, name services options, and for clienting the global zone to an existing LDAP server.

Trusted CDE actions

In Trusted CDE, Workspace Menu –> Application Manager –> Trusted_Extensions contains CDE actions that configure files, install and boot zones, and simplify other Trusted Extensions tasks. For the tasks that these actions perform, see Trusted CDE Actions. Trusted CDE online help also describes these actions.

Admin Editor

This trusted editor is used to edit system files. In Trusted CDE, Workspace Menu –> Application Manager –> Trusted_Extensions –> Admin Editor invokes the Admin Editor. In Trusted JDS, the editor is invoked from the command line. You provide the file to be edited as the argument, as in:

/usr/dt/bin/trusted_edit filename
Device Allocation Manager

In Trusted Extensions, this GUI is used to administer devices. The Device Administration dialog box is used by administrators to configure devices.

The Device Allocation Manager is used by roles and regular users to allocate devices. The GUI is available from the Trusted Path menu.

Label Builder

This application is invoked when the user can choose a label or a clearance. This application also appears when a role assigns labels or label ranges to devices, zones, users, or roles.

Selection Manager

This application is invoked when an authorized user or authorized role attempts to upgrade or downgrade information.

Trusted Path menu

This menu handles interactions with the trusted computing base (TCB). For example, this menu has a Change Password menu item. In Trusted CDE, you access the Trusted Path menu from the workspace switch area. In Trusted JDS, you access the Trusted Path menu by clicking the trusted symbol at the left of the trusted stripe.

Administrative commands

Trusted Extensions provides commands to obtain labels and perform other tasks. For a list of the commands, see Command Line Tools in Trusted Extensions.
