security_check_context(3) SELinux API documentation security_check_context(3)NAME
security_check_context - check the validity of a SELinux context
int security_check_context(security_context_t con);
int security_check_context_raw(security_context_t con);
security_check_context() returns 0 if SELinux is running and the context is valid, otherwise it returns -1.
security_check_context_raw() behaves identically to security_check_context() but does not perform context translation.

setfilecon(3) SELinux API documentation setfilecon(3)NAME
setfilecon, fsetfilecon, lsetfilecon - set SELinux security context of a file
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);
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
setfilecon_raw(), lsetfilecon_raw(), and fsetfilecon_raw() behave identically to their non-raw counterparts but do not perform context
On success, zero is returned. On failure, -1 is returned and errno is set appropriately.
If there is insufficient space remaining to store the extended attribute, errno is set to either ENOSPC, or EDQUOT if quota enforcement was
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.
