Device Access

As expected, device access control is also more strict than in Solaris 8. Because input/output devices may be used to import and export restricted information, mandatory access control also applies to them. In Trusted Solaris 8, all devices have appropriate labels assigned to them, and access is either granted or denied, depending on the device’s label, rights and privileges possessed by the user or the role, the label of the data being exported or imported, and other conditions. Only when all conditions are met is access to the device granted.
