getfilecon(3)			    SELinux API documentation			    getfilecon(3)

NAME
       getfilecon, fgetfilecon, lgetfilecon - get SELinux security context of a file

SYNOPSIS
       #include <selinux/selinux.h>

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

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

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

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

       int fgetfilecon(int fd, security_context_t *con);

       int fgetfilecon_raw(int fd, security_context_t *con);

DESCRIPTION
       getfilecon()  retrieves the context associated with the given path in the file system, the
       length of the context is returned.

       lgetfilecon() is identical to getfilecon(), except in the case of a symbolic  link,  where
       the link itself is interrogated, not the file that it refers to.

       fgetfilecon()  is  identical to getfilecon(), only the open file pointed to by filedes (as
       returned by open(2)) is interrogated in place of path.

       getfilecon_raw(), lgetfilecon_raw() and fgetfilecon_raw() behave identically to their non-
       raw counterparts but do not perform context translation.

       The returned context should be freed with freecon(3) if non-NULL.

RETURN VALUE
       On  success,  a	positive number is returned indicating the size of the extended attribute
       value. On failure, -1 is returned and errno is  set appropriately.

       If the context does not exist, or the process has no access to this  attribute,	errno  is
       set to ENODATA.

       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.
