7.2 Sealing a File

The following code demonstrates how to seal a file using the seal method. The content to seal can be provided as any type of; this example uses a file input stream. Similarly, the sealed content can be written out to any output stream; this example writes the sealed content as a file whose file name is derived from the unsealed file name. When a file is sealed, a Classification must be specified. In this sample the file is sealed using the context classification system, specifying a context with a known UUID value and a fixed item code value.
