Label Builder in Trusted Extensions

The label builder GUI supplies your choice of a valid label or clearance when a program requires you to assign a label. For example, a label builder appears during desktop login (see Chapter 2, Logging In to Trusted Extensions in Trusted Extensions User’s Guide). The label builder also appears when you change the label of a workspace, or when you assign a label to a user, zone, or network interface. The following label builder appears when you assign a label range to a new device.

In the label builder, component names in the Classification column correspond to the CLASSIFICATIONS section in the label_encodings file. The component names in the Sensitivity column correspond to the WORDS section under the SENSITIVITY section in the label_encodings file.

Developers can construct label builders for their applications by using the tgnome-selectlabel command. Type tgnome-selectlabel -h to display the online help. Also, see Chapter 6, Label Builder GUI in Trusted Extensions Developer’s Guide.
