       device_clean - device clean programs

       Each  allocatable  device has a device clean program associated with it. Device clean pro-
       grams are invoked by deallocate(1) to clean device states,  registers,  and  any  residual
       information  in	the  device  before  the  device is allocated to a user. Such cleaning is
       required by the object reuse policy.

       Use list_devices(1) to obtain the names and types of allocatable devices as  well  as  the
       cleaning program and the authorizations that are associated with each device.

       On  a system configured with Trusted Extensions, device clean programs are also invoked by
       allocate(1), in which case the program can optionally  mount  appropriate  media  for  the

       The following device clean programs reside in /etc/security/lib.

       audio_clean    audio devices

       fd_clean       floppy devices

       st_clean       tape devices

       sr_clean       CD-ROM devices

       On a system configured with Trusted Extensions, the following additional cleaning programs
       and wrappers are available.

       disk_clean	      floppy, CD-ROM, and other removable  media  devices.  This  program
			      mounts the device during the execution of allocate, if required.

       audio_clean_wrapper    wrapper to make audio_clean work with CDE

       wdwwrapper	      wrapper to make other cleaning programs work with CDE

       wdwmsg		      CDE dialog boxes for cleaning programs

       Administrators  can  create  device  clean  programs  for their sites. These programs must
       adhere to the syntax described below.

	 /etc/security/lib/device-clean-program [-i | -f | -s | -I] \
	 -m mode -u user-name -z zone-name -p zone-path device-name


       device-name    The name of the device that is to be cleaned. Use  list_devices  to  obtain
		      the list of allocatable devices.

       -i	      Invoke boot-time initialization.

       -f	      Force cleanup by the administrator.

       -s	      Invoke standard cleanup by the user.

       -I	      Same as -i, with no error or warning.

       The following options are supported only when the system is configured with Trusted Exten-

       -m mode	       Specify the mode in which the clean program is invoked. Valid  values  are
		       allo- cate and deallocate. The default mode is allocate.

       -u user-name    Specify	the  name  of  user  who  executes  the device clean program. The
		       default user is the caller.

       -z zone-name    Specify the name of the zone in which the device is  to	be  allocated  or
		       deallocated. The default zone is the global zone.

       -p zone-path    Establish  the  root  path  of  the  zone  that is specified by zone-name.
		       Default is "/".

       The following exit values are returned:


	   Successful completion.


	   An error. Caller can place device in error state.


	   A system error. Caller can place device in error state.

       On a system configured with Trusted Extensions, the following additional exit  values  are


	   Mounting of device failed. Caller shall not place device in error state.


	   Mounting of device succeeded.

       /etc/security/lib/*    device clean programs
