In Oracle Solaris, labels facilitate data loss protection, which is a requirement of certain standards, such as PCI-DSS. For an overview of the steps to use labels for data loss protection, see Overall Process for Configuring Labeling.
Configuring labels involves the following tasks:
Creating labels – Initially Configuring Labels in Oracle Solaris
Hardening labeled file systems – Further Hardening Labeled File Systems
Backing up and archiving labeled file systems – Maintaining Labeled File Systems
Testing labels – Viewing and Testing Sample Label Encodings Files
