7.32 .hidden names

This one of the ELF visibility directives. The other two are .internal (see section .internal) and .protected (see section .protected).

This directive overrides the named symbols default visibility (which is set by their binding: local, global or weak). The directive sets the visibility to hidden which means that the symbols are not visible to other components. Such symbols are always considered to be protected as well.
