How to Set a Minimum "Protect As" Classification

The minimum "Protect As" classification protects all printer output at the specified minimum classification or above. Site security policy might require this setting if lower-level information must be protected at a higher label.

Before You Begin

You must be in the Security Administrator role in the global zone.

  1. Edit the label_encodings file.
    # pfedit encodings-file
  2. Specify a classification as the value for the minimum protect as classification entry.

    This entry is defined in the ACCREDITATION RANGE section of the label_encodings file.
