NAME

matchpathcon - get the default SELinux security context for the specified path from the file contexts configuration.

 

SYNOPSIS

matchpathcon [-V] [-N] [-n] [-f file_contexts_file ] [-p prefix ] filepath...  

DESCRIPTION

matchpathcon queries the system policy and outputs the default security context associated with the filepath.

Note: Identical paths can have different security contexts, depending on the file type. (regular file, directory, link file, char file ...)

matchpathcon will also take the file type into consideration in determining the default security context if the file exists. If the file does not exist, no file type matching will occur.

 

OPTIONS

-n Do not display path.

-N Do not use translations.

-f file_context_file Use alternate file_context file

-p prefix Use prefix to speed translations

-V Verify file context on disk matches defaults
