NAME
bltocolor, bltocolor_r - get character-coded color name of label SYNOPSIS
cc [flag...] file... -ltsol [library...] #include <tsol/label.h> char *bltocolor(const m_label_t *label); char *bltocolor_r(const m_label_t *label, const int size, char *color_name); DESCRIPTION
The bltocolor() and bltocolor_r() functions get the character-coded color name associated with the binary label label. The calling process must have PRIV_SYS_TRANS_LABEL in its set of effective privileges to get color names of labels that dominate the cur- rent process's sensitivity label. RETURN VALUES
The bltocolor() function returns a pointer to a statically allocated string that contains the character-coded color name specified for the label or returns (char *)0 if, for any reason, no character-coded color name is available for this binary label. The bltocolor_r() function returns a pointer to the color_name string which contains the character-coded color name specified for the label or returns (char *)0 if, for any reason, no character-coded color name is available for this binary label. color_name must provide for a string of at least size characters. FILES
/etc/security/tsol/label_encodings The label encodings file contains the classification names, words, constraints, and values for the defined labels of this system. ATTRIBUTES
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes: +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ | ATTRIBUTE TYPE | ATTRIBUTE VALUE | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |Interface Stability |Obsolete | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ |MT-Level |MT-Safe with exceptions | +-----------------------------+-----------------------------+ These functions are obsolete and retained for ease of porting. They might be removed in a future Solaris Trusted Extensions release. Use the label_to_str(3TSOL) function instead. The bltocolor() function returns a pointer to a statically allocated string. Subsequent calls to it will overwrite that string with a new character-coded color name. It is not MT-Safe. The bltocolor_r() function should be used in multithreaded applications. SEE ALSO

The functionality described on this manual page is available only if the system is configured with Trusted Extensions. If label includes a specified word or words, the character-coded color name associated with the first word specified in the label encodings file is returned. Otherwise, if no character-coded color name is specified for label, the first character-coded color name specified in the label encodings file with the same classification as the binary label is returned.

NAME
sbltos, sbsltos, sbcleartos - translate binary labels to canonical character-coded labels SYNOPSIS
cc [flag...] file... -ltsol [library...] #include <tsol/label.h> char *sbsltos(const m_label_t *label, const int len); char *sbcleartos(const m_label_t *clearance, const int len); DESCRIPTION
These functions translate binary labels into canonical strings that are clipped to the number of printable characters specified in len. Clipping is required if the number of characters of the translated string is greater than len. Clipping is done by truncating the label on the right to two characters less than the specified number of characters. A clipped indicator, "<-", is appended to sensitivity labels and clearances. The character-coded label begins with a classification name separated with a single space character from the list of words mak- ing up the remainder of the label. The binary labels must be of the proper defined type and dominated by the process's sensitivity label. A len of 0 (zero) returns the entire string with no clipping. The sbsltos() function translates a binary sensitivity label into a clipped string using the long form of the words and the short form of the classification name. If len is less than the minimum number of characters (three), the translation fails. The sbcleartos() function translates a binary clearance into a clipped string using the long form of the words and the short form of the classification name. If len is less than the minimum number of characters (three), the translation fails. The translation of a clearance might not be the same as the translation of a sensitivity label. These functions use different tables of the label_encodings file which might contain different words and constraints. The calling process must have PRIV_SYS_TRANS_LABEL in its set of effective privileges to perform label translation on labels that dominate the current process's sensitivity label. Process Attributes If the VIEW_EXTERNAL or VIEW_INTERNAL flags are not specified, translation of ADMIN_LOW and ADMIN_HIGH labels is controlled by the label view process attribute flags. If no label view process attribute flags are defined, their translation is controlled by the label view con- figured in the label_encodings file. A value of External specifies that ADMIN_LOW and ADMIN_HIGH labels are mapped to the lowest and high- est labels defined in the label_encodings file. A value of Internal specifies that the ADMIN_LOW and ADMIN_HIGH labels are translated to the admin low name and admin high name strings specified in the label_encodings file. If no such names are specified, the strings "ADMIN_LOW" and "ADMIN_HIGH" are used. RETURN VALUES
These functions return a pointer to a statically allocated string that contains the result of the translation, or (char *)0 if the transla- tion fails for any reason. EXAMPLES
sbsltos() Assume that a sensitivity label is: UN TOP/MIDDLE/LOWER DRAWER When clipped to ten characters it is: UN TOP/M<- sbcleartos() Assume that a clearance is: UN TOP/MIDDLE/LOWER DRAWER When clipped to ten characters it is: UN TOP/M<- FILES
