setfilecon(3)			    SELinux API documentation			    setfilecon(3)

NAME
       setfilecon, fsetfilecon, lsetfilecon - set SELinux security context of a file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

       int setfilecon(const char *path, security_context_t con);

       int setfilecon_raw(const char *path, security_context_t con);

       int lsetfilecon(const char *path, security_context_t con);

       int lsetfilecon_raw(const char *path, security_context_t con);

       int fsetfilecon(int fd, security_context_t con);

       int fsetfilecon_raw(int fd, security_context_t con);

DESCRIPTION
       setfilecon() sets the security context of the file system object.

       lsetfilecon() is identical to setfilecon, except in the case of a symbolic link, where the
       link itself has it's context set, not the file that it refers to.

       fsetfilecon() is identical to setfilecon, only the open file pointed  to  by  filedes  (as
       returned by open(2)) has it's context set in place of path.

       setfilecon_raw(),  lsetfilecon_raw(),  and  fsetfilecon_raw()  behave identically to their
       non-raw counterparts but do not perform context translation.

RETURN VALUE
       On success, zero is returned. On failure, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.

ERRORS
       If there is insufficient space remaining to store the extended attribute, errno is set  to
       either ENOSPC, or EDQUOT if quota enforcement was the cause.

       If  extended attributes are not supported by the filesystem, or are disabled, errno is set
       to ENOTSUP.

       The errors documented for the stat(2) system call are also applicable here.
