The policy specifies rules for labeling new files based on:
- the context of the creating process,
- the context of the parent directory,
- the kind of file (e.g. regular, directory, symlink, device,...).

By default (in the absence of any matching rule in the policy), there is
a standard manner in which the context is computed from the creating
process context and parent directory context.

The allowed accesses between a given process context and a given file
context are explicitly defined via an access matrix, specified via the
policy.
