How to Specify Default User Labels

Before You Begin

You must be in the Security Administrator role in the global zone. You must have an encodings file with a LOCAL DEFINITIONS section.

  1. Back up the label_encodings file.
    # cp label_encodings label_encodings.orig
  2. Edit the label_encodings file.
    # pfedit label_encodings
  3. Find the line in the LOCAL DEFINITIONS section that begins with Default User Sensitivity Label.
    Default User Sensitivity Label= u;
    Default User Clearance= c;
  4. Replace the sensitivity label with your desired minimum user label.

    The following example shows a new minimum label of c.

    Default User Sensitivity Label= c;
  5. Replace the clearance with your desired user clearance.

    The following example shows a new clearance of s.

    Default User Clearance= s;
  6. Save your changes.
