Who Should Use This Book
This book is for security administrators. Security administrators are responsible for defining the
organization's labels. Some security administrators are also responsible for implementing the labels. This
book is for definers and implementers.
Note - Even though Trusted Extensions can be configured with no visible labels, labels are
always being used. Labels provide mandatory access control (MAC), and MAC is always
enforced. Therefore, the site's label_encodings file must be in place before any users
or roles are created.
Trusted Extensions installs a default label_encodings file. The security administrator must provide a file
that is appropriate for the site.
The security administrator who implements the labels should be familiar with Solaris administration.
The necessary level of knowledge can be acquired through training and documentation. For
details, see Documentation, Support, and Training.
