sepol_check_context(3) SE Linux binary policy API documentation sepol_check_context(3)NAME
sepol_check_context - Check the validity of a security context against a binary policy.
int sepol_check_context(const char *context);
int sepol_set_policydb_from_file(FILE *fp);
sepol_check_context checks the validity of a security context against a binary policy previously loaded from a file via sepol_set_poli-
cydb_from_file. It is used by setfiles -c to validate a file contexts configuration against the binary policy upon policy builds. For
validating a context against the active policy on a SELinux system, use security_check_context from libselinux instead.
Returns 0 on success or -1 with errno set otherwise.

set_matchpathcon_flags(3) SELinux API documentation set_matchpathcon_flags(3)NAME
set_matchpathcon_flags, set_matchpathcon_invalidcon, set_matchpathcon_printf - set flags controlling the operation of matchpathcon or
matchpathcon_index and configure the behaviour of validity checking and error displaying
void set_matchpathcon_flags(unsigned int flags);
void set_matchpathcon_invalidcon(int (*f)(const char *path, unsigned lineno, char *context));
void set_matchpathcon_printf(void (*f)(const char *fmt, ...));
set_matchpathcon_flags() sets the flags controlling the operation of matchpathcon_init(3) and subsequently matchpathcon_index(3) or match-
pathcon(3). If the MATCHPATHCON_BASEONLY flag is set, then only the base file contexts configuration file will be processed, not any
dynamically generated entries or local customizations.
set_matchpathcon_invalidcon() sets the function used by matchpathcon_init(3) when checking the validity of a context in the file contexts
configuration. If not set, then this defaults to a test based on security_check_context(3), which checks validity against the active pol-
icy on a SELinux system. This can be set to instead perform checking based on a binary policy file, e.g. using sepol_check_context(3), as
is done by setfiles -c. The function is also responsible for reporting any such error, and may include the path and lineno in such error
set_matchpathcon_printf() sets the function used by matchpathcon_init(3) when displaying errors about the file contexts configuration. If
not set, then this defaults to fprintf(stderr, fmt, ...). This can be set to redirect error reporting to a different destination.
Returns zero on success or -1 otherwise.
