runcon - run command with specified security context
runcon CONTEXT COMMAND [args] runcon [ -c ] [-u USER] [-r ROLE] [-t TYPE] [-l RANGE] COMMAND [args]
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
