A system that is configured with Solaris Trusted Extensions enforces mandatory access
control (MAC) and discretionary access control (DAC). Access control is enforced between
communicating processes on the same host and across the network. This chapter
summarizes the interprocess communication (IPC) mechanisms that are available in a system
configured with Trusted Extensions. This chapter also discusses how access controls apply.
