How to Create a label_encodings File

For sample files, see the /etc/security/tsol directory on an installed system. The files are described in Encodings Files From Trusted Extensions.

You can create a label_encodings file before you install Trusted Extensions on your first system. On that first system, you check the file. You can also create this file on the first system that you install with Trusted Extensions. The label_encodings file must be accurate and tested before a second system is configured with Trusted Extensions.

Before You Begin

On a system that is configured with Trusted Extensions, you must be in the Security Administrator role in the global zone. On other systems, you can create and edit the file in any text editor.

  1. Create a backup copy of the original label encodings file.
    # cp encodings-filename encodings-filename.orig
  2. In an editor, open the label encodings file.
  3. Modify the label encodings file.

    For details, see How to Plan the Encodings File.

  4. Save your changes.
