       -P, --prompt
	      outputs data in a format suitable for a prompt

       -C, --color
	      outputs data with the associated ANSI color codes (requires -P)

       -u, --user

       -c, --clearance
	      show the clearance level of the security context

       -m, --mls-range
	      show the sensitivity level and clearance, as a range, of the security context

       -R, --raw
	      outputs  the sensitivity level and clearance in an untranslated format.

       -f, --file
	      gets the context from the specified file FILE

       -L, --link
	      gets the context from the specified file FILE (doesn't follow symlinks)

       -p, --pid
	      gets the context from the specified process PID

       --pid-exec
	      gets the exec context from the specified process PID

       --pid-fs
	      gets the fscreate context from the specified process PID

       --current, --self
	      gets the context from the current process

       --current-exec, --self-exec
	      gets the exec context from the current process

       --current-fs, --self-fs
	      gets the fscreate context from the current process

       --parent
	      gets the context from the parent of the current process

       --parent-exec
	      gets the exec context from the parent of the current process

       --parent-fs
	      gets the fscreate context from the parent of the current process

       Additional argument CONTEXT may be provided and will be used if no options have been spec-
       ified  to  make secon get its context from another source.  If that argument is - then the
       context will be read from stdin.
       If there is no argument, secon will try reading a context from stdin, if  that  is  not	a
       tty, otherwise secon will act as though --self had been passed.

       If  none  of  --user,  --role, --type, --level or --mls-range is passed.  Then all of them
       will be output.
