       setlabel - move files to zone with corresponding sensitivity label

       /usr/bin/setlabel newlabel filename...

       setlabel moves files into the zone whose label corresponds to newlabel. The old file path-
       name is adjusted so that it is relative to the root pathname of the new zone. If  the  old
       pathname  for a file's parent directory does not exist as a directory in the new zone, the
       file is not moved. Once moved, the file might no longer be accessible in the current zone.

       Unless newlabel and filename have been specified, no labels are set.

       Labels are defined by the security administrator at your site. The system always  displays
       labels in uppercase. Users can enter labels in any combination of uppercase and lowercase.
       Incremental changes to labels are supported.

       Refer to setflabel(3TSOL) for a complete description of the conditions that  are  required
       to satisfy this command, and the privileges that are needed to execute this command.

       setlabel exits with one of the following values:

       0    Successful completion.

       1    Usage error.

       2    Error in getting, setting or translating the label.

       On the command line, enclose the label in double quotes unless the label is only one word.
       Without quotes, a second word or letter separated by a space is interpreted  as	a  second

	 % setlabel SECRET somefile
	 % setlabel "TOP SECRET" somefile

       Use any combination of upper and lowercase letters. You can separate items in a label with
       blanks, tabs, commas or slashes (/). Do not use any other punctuation.

	 % setlabel "ts a b" somefile
	 % setlabel "ts,a,b" somefile
	 % setlabel "ts/a b" somefile
	 % setlabel " TOP SECRET A B   " somefile

       Example 1 Set a Label.

       To set somefile's label to SECRET A:

	 example% setlabel "Secret a" somefile

       Example 2 Turn On a Compartment.

       Plus and minus signs can be used to modify an existing label. A plus  sign  turns  on  the
       specified compartment for somefile's label.

	 example% setlabel +b somefile

       Example 3 Turn Off a Compartment.

       A minus sign turns off the compartments that are associated with a classification. To turn
       off compartment A in somefile's label:

	 example% setlabel -A somefile

       If an incremental change is being made to an existing label and the first character of the
       label is a hyphen (-), a preceding double-hyphen (--) is required.

       To turn off compartment -A in somefile's label:

	 example% setlabel -- -A somefile

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWtsu			   |
       |Interface Stability	     |Committed 		   |

       The functionality described on this manual page is available only if the system is config-
       ured with Trusted Extensions.

       This implementation of setting a label is meaningful for the Defense  Intelligence  Agency
       (DIA) Mandatory Access Control (MAC) policy. For more information, see label_encodings(4).
