NAME
chcon - change file security context SYNOPSIS
chcon [OPTION]... CONTEXT FILE... chcon [OPTION]... [-u USER] [-r ROLE] [-l RANGE] [-t TYPE] FILE... chcon [OPTION]... --reference=RFILE FILE... DESCRIPTION
Change the security context of each FILE to CONTEXT. With --reference, change the security context of each FILE to that of RFILE. -h, --no-dereference affect symbolic links instead of any referenced file --reference=RFILE use RFILE's security context rather than specifying a CONTEXT value -R, --recursive operate on files and directories recursively -v, --verbose output a diagnostic for every file processed -u, --user=USER set user USER in the target security context -r, --role=ROLE set role ROLE in the target security context -t, --type=TYPE set type TYPE in the target security context -l, --range=RANGE set range RANGE in the target security context The following options modify how a hierarchy is traversed when the -R option is also specified. If more than one is specified, only the final one takes effect. -H if a command line argument is a symbolic link to a directory, traverse it -L traverse every symbolic link to a directory encountered -P do not traverse any symbolic links (default) --help display this help and exit --version output version information and exit AUTHOR

NAME
runcon - run command with specified security context SYNOPSIS
runcon CONTEXT COMMAND [args] runcon [ -c ] [-u USER] [-r ROLE] [-t TYPE] [-l RANGE] COMMAND [args] DESCRIPTION
Run COMMAND with completely-specified CONTEXT, or with current or transitioned security context modified by one or more of LEVEL, ROLE, TYPE, and USER. If none of -c, -t, -u, -r, or -l, is specified, the first argument is used as the complete context. Any additional arguments after COMMAND are interpreted as arguments to the command. Note that only carefully-chosen contexts are likely to successfully run. Run a program in a different security context. With neither CONTEXT nor COMMAND, print the current security context. CONTEXT Complete security context -c, --compute compute process transition context before modifying -t, --type=TYPE type (for same role as parent) -u, --user=USER user identity -r, --role=ROLE role -l, --range=RANGE levelrange --help display this help and exit --version output version information and exit AUTHOR
